Decarbonisation of energy

Determining a robust mix of energy carriers for a carbon-neutral EU Decarbonising the European energy system requires a fundamental transformation in the way societies provide, transport and consume energy. Disagreement exists over how this system should look in 2050. In this project, we prepared an overview report on the decarbonisation options for coal, natural gas, and hydrogen in Europe. The...

Fossil Resource markets and climate policy: Stranded assets, Expectations and the political Economy of climate change (FoReSee)

Project synopsis Achieving the Paris agreement requires a radical transformation of the inherently inert energy system. Assets in the form of fossil energy resources and existing infrastructure along the fossil value chain are at the risk of rapidly losing value and becoming „stranded assets”. Asset owners, therefore, have incentives to delay or even prevent the implementation of...

Future of Fossil Fuels in the wake of greenhouse gas neutrality (FFF)

The objective of this project is to investigate previously under-researched aspects of decarbonizing the German electricity sector in the European context and to derive an assessment of concrete policy instruments for both the German and the European level. In doing so, we extend existing analyses that focus solely on a coal phase-out in Germany by considering a wider geographical scope including...

Modern state-owned firms' performance: An empirical analysis of productivity, market power and innovation

In sectors of general interests, the economic activity of the state decreased over decades as a consequence of privatisation and liberalisation. Recently, local governments began to remunicipalise in the energy and water sector, thereby creating a new and modern generation of state-owned firms.  These firms, however, differ in organisation and production environment from the state monopolists...

open ENTRANCE

The aim of the project “Open ENergy TRansition ANalyses for a low-carbon Economy” is to develop, apply and disseminate an open, transparent and integrated modelling platform designed to assess low-carbon transition pathways in Europe. The platform will initially be populated with a suite of state-of-the-art modelling tools by the project partners that will process data derived from the...

Open-source modeling of the future role of renewable hydrogen in Germany and Europe

In the project "Open Hydrogen Modeling", we expand and link three Berlin-based open-source models: the Global Gas Market Model (GGM), the Global Energy System Model (GENeSYS-MOD), and the electricity sector model DIETER. We investigate the prospects of the hydrogen markets in creation, ranging from the global market to the European and German market. We are particularly interested in the...
