Energy Economics and System Design

For designing and shaping future energy supply structures, we develop, model and simulate cross-sectoral expansion scenarios. In addition to the reaction on the energy market and market design, the spatio-temporal behavior of production and load play a central role, with particular consideration for new technologies. Based on this, the energy analysis and evaluation, the derivation of recommendations for action and the development of business models are carried out.
