EEG-calculator and the “Agorameter” are our flagships, along with many smaller applications and data sets.
Energy policy remains the subject of intense debate, but not the question of whether to pursue the energy transition, rather only the question of how.
With the Energiewende the current electricity market comes to its limits. In future it will also have to provide security of supply and investment incentives.
It is obvious that a lean and highly efficient energy system has many advantages. The challenge is to set the right incentives. This is the key to adapting future demand to fluctuating power generation.
The transition to a low-carbon economy will be successful only if Germany’s industrial base remains strong while the share of renewable energies grows. So far, this has been the case. The goal is to maintain this position even when renewables make up 80 percent of the power [...]
The switch to an energy supply based on renewable energies must be affordable. This requires that the individual elements of the energy system be viewed holistically and coordinated cost-effectively.
Expanding the power network is today the most cost-effective way to put renewable energy to work where it is needed.
An energy system with large fluctuations in power supply must do everything to balance supply and demand.
It’s all a bit more complicated than simply replacing nuclear and fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. Rather, the further expansion of renewable energies means a complete transformation of the entire system. The existing legislative framework and the role of the [...]
Phasing out coal in a socially acceptable way is crucial to make the Energiewende a success and to meet the 2020 and 2030 goals on climate protection
The Energiewende is a project that spans all walks of society and enjoys broad popular support. For its continued success, this general acceptance is just as important as the acceptance of individual measures.
Transparency in regulating power networks is a democratic right of responsible citizens and consumers, and a transparent network infrastructure is vital to the success of an efficient energy transition. The energy industry needs a transparency transition.
