The energy transition leads to a radical change of energy systems and results in lasting impacts on the environment, economy and society. Fraunhofer ISI conducts model-based analyses of the German and European energy system and also examines the energy supply and energy demand side up to the time horizon 2050 in order to facilitate that all actors involved in the energy transi-tion address the changes at an early stage. For example with the aid of energy-system-models the design of the electricity markets can be optimized and op-tions for the integration of renewable energy technologies into the energy sys-tem can be analyzed. In addition, in the research projects of the Institute sce-narios to assess the future energy demand in the long-term and its possible impacts on countries, regions and sectors are developed.
More information on the model-based analyses can be found on the web sites of the two energy system models enertile and Forecast / eLoad.
