Long-term price increases for fossil fuels coupled with falling prices for renewable energy technologies are altering the economic framework that underpins investments in energy production systems. Added to this there are political objectives and corresponding incentives, which are subject to constant change. New markets are created in this economic and political environment that can be used to positive effect at corporate and state level.
The business area Energy System Analysis develops business models that take into account the altered conditions in different markets. One important aspect here is the analysis of options for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies in the future, including in countries where they are currently still scarce. Both commercial and macroeconomic implications are taken into account.
