Energy Policy and Technologies 

The Energy Policy and Energy Technologies business unit prepares analyses and recommendations for scientific policy advice in the fields of climate protection and resource efficiency, especially energy and material demand. The focus lies on the energy demand sectors of industry and buildings. Regarding the industrial sector, the business unit offers specific expertise in the emission- and energy-intensive sectors of basic industries. In the building sector, our work focuses on the impact analysis of policy instruments using scenario analyses based on our own agent-based energy system model Invert/EE-Lab. The aim of our work is to provide our clients with professional support for decision making and evaluation of alternatives for action by means of scientific analyses.


  • both techno-economic impact assessments and modelling of the effects of existing or planned policy instruments, also accounting for individual decision-making by the actors 

  • recommendations for the development and design of regulatory, economic and informational climate protection and energy efficiency measures for industry and buildings 

  • techno-economic evaluation as well as analyses of potentials and obstacles of new energy technologies, efficiency measures and industrial production processes   

  • analyses of the value chains of emission-intensive products  

  • modelling of energy demand scenarios
