Renewable energy

Renewable energy carriers play a major role in climate change mitigation and the conservation of resources. We analyse their environmental impacts, identify realisable potentials and supervise pilot projects. We provide consulting services for ministries and public authorities, and optimise policy instruments for the promotion of sun, wind, water, and biomass.

Projects

Kopernikus-Project Power-to-X

The “energy transition” is closely linked to a “raw materials transition” because electrical energy has previously been generated primarily from fossil resources involving the release of CO2. These…

Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) – Progress Report

The main objective of this research project is to create reliable scientific information as a high-quality basis for the EEG-progress report. Additionally, the annual monitoring report is being…

The 3E Multiple Dwelling Unit

In the BMUB-funded research project “The 3E Multiple dwelling unit”, LichtBlick and the ifeu investigate business models for the electricity supply of electric vehicles with self-generated electricity…

A roadmap for the energy transition

An interdisciplinary team of scientists has connected the individual strands of the energy transition to form a whole, creating interfaces and transitions in the form of a roadmap for the energy…

Renewable Energy Masterplan Nigeria

Nigeria, the land of oil, gas and coal resources, is developing a Renewable Energy Master Plan (REMP). Renewable energy ought to help improve the rural population’s access to modern energy, reduce the…

Renewable Energy for Peru

The Peruvian electricity generation is characterized by a high proportion of hydroelectric power, but also by a growing contribution of gas-fired power plants. Increasing climate variability and…

Electricity grid model

The ifeu electricity grid model is a flexible tool to derive the environmental impacts connected to electricity generation in different countries and regions of the world. Included are extraction and…
