Our application-oriented research focuses on success factors (best practice) and barriers that promote or impede the creation of sustainable energy systems at the international level.
Our areas of expertise are:
- Development of innovative methods for coping with energy turnaround transformation processes in companies, regions, and countries
- Social acceptance research regarding innovative technologies in the energy sector
- Integrated evaluation of infrastructure projects and implementation of stakeholder dialogues (taking into account economic, ecological, and social aspects)
- Drafting strategies to achieve cooperative solutions in international environmental negotiation processes
In terms of methodology, our analyses are based in particular on the identification of best practice examples, comparative analysis of situations in different countries, political science approaches, and the use of innovative dialogue and mediation procedures.
