Weather-Related Disasters, Rural Livelihoods and Off-Farm Self-Employment: Three Essays in Development Microeconomics

Der Klimawandel ist eine globale Herausforderung, aber seine Auswirkungen sind besonders stark in Entwicklungsländern zu spüren. So erleiden arme Menschen deutlich höhere Verluste, weil sie Extremereignissen stärker ausgesetzt sind und weniger Ressourcen für Anpassung und Schockbewältigung haben. Trotz der weitreichenden Auswirkungen des Klimawandels auf Haushalte in Entwicklungsländern ist die aktuelle ...

Border Carbon Adjustments and Alternative Measures for the EU ETS: An Evaluation

As part of its Green Deal, the European Commission is considering the introduction of border carbon adjustments and alternative measures. The measures, which would primarily apply to basic materials like steel and cement, pursue a double objective: they are aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of carbon pricing for the transition to climate neutrality but also at avoiding carbon leakage risks. When ...

An Effective Federal Climate Change Act Needs Leading Indicators

To reach the climate targets, the course towards a climate-neutral society must be set now. However, the current monitoring instruments in the Climate Change Act do not provide sufficient information to policymakers and society on the effectiveness of policy instruments and programs, as they focus exclusively on greenhouse gas reduction targets, which are subject to uncertainty. Moreover, they only ...

Die EU Sustainable-Finance-Strategie: Implikationen für die künftige Bundesregierung

 Die überarbeitete Sustainable-Finance-Strategie der EU bestätigt die wichtige Rolle der Finanzbranche für die Nachhaltigkeitstransition der Wirtschaft, konkretisiert sie jedoch nicht ausreichend. Viele der Maßnahmen sind begrüßenswert, oft mangelt es jedoch an Dringlichkeit und Dynamik. Die Strategie sollte stärker in das gesamtwirtschaftliche regulatorische Umfeld eingeordnet werden, um das Zusammenwirken ...

The Role of Energy Storage in the Uptake of Renewable Energy: A Model Comparison Approach

The power sector needs to ensure a rapid transition towards a low-carbon energy system to avoid the dangerous consequences of greenhouse gas emissions. Storage technologies are a promising option to provide the power system with the flexibility required when intermittent renewables are present in the electricity generation mix. This paper focuses on the role of electricity storage in energy systems ...

The Economics of Variable Renewable Energy and Electricity Storage

The transformation of the electricity sector is a central element of the transition to a decarbonized economy. Conventional generators powered by fossil fuels have to be replaced by variable renewable energy (VRE) sources in combination with electricity storage and other options for providing temporal flexibility. We discuss the market dynamics of increasing VRE penetration and its integration in the ...

Scenario Analysis as a Tool for Companies, Investors, and Regulators on the Path to Climate Neutrality

The structural transformation necessary for achieving climate neutrality is characterized by many interdependent changes. Shaping the transition to a zero-emissions economy cannot be based on past data alone, but also requires the definition of future scenarios that are as consistent as possible. The aim of these scenarios is to show how companies are prepared for transformation processes and burdens ...

The Economics of Production, Integration and Efficient Use of Renewable Energy

Die Auseinandersetzung mit der Klimakrise bringt drei Herausforderungen bezüglich der Produktion, der Integration und der effizienten Nutzung von Energie mit sich. Diese Herausforderungen werden in den drei Kapiteln dieser Dissertation analysiert. Erstens wird Energieeffizienz weithin sowohl als ein effektives Mittel zur Reduzierung des Verbrauchs fossiler Energien als auch als kosteneffiziente Lösung ...
