The Depart­ment of Energy Sys­tems is one of the most dis­tin­guished aca­demic insti­tu­tions in Ger­many and inter­na­tion­ally with a focus on the energy industry. The depart­ment per­forms inter­dis­cip­lin­ary tasks and deals with the com­plex inter­ac­tions between tech­no­logy, polit­ics, soci­ety and the energy mar­kets.
The team is char­ac­ter­ized by staff with vari­ous pro­fes­sional back­grounds, the like of engin­eer­ing, eco­nom­ics and human­it­ies, on whose approaches and meth­ods the work is based. Our work focuses in par­tic­u­lar on the fol­low­ing top­ics:
  • Ana­lysis of energy and envir­on­mental policy frame­works and mar­ket design
  • Con­sid­er­a­tion of social aspects of energy trans­form­a­tions
  • Stud­ies on energy poverty, access to energy and devel­op­ment in the Global South
  • Ana­lysis of energy mar­ket and pri­cing struc­tures
  • Exam­in­a­tion of energy industry innov­a­tions and their sys­tem integ­ra­tion
In addi­tion to research, the depart­ment makes an import­ant con­tri­bu­tion to the edu­ca­tion of future decision-makers in the energy sec­tor with a com­pre­hens­ive range of courses, crit­ical sci­entific dis­course and the super­vi­sion of dis­ser­ta­tions.
