Policy Advice

Energy

We advise decision makers on topics related to international energy and climate politics, regulations and markets. Together with our partners, we design and analyse strategies, institutional and legal frameworks and incentive schemes which foster renewable energies and energy efficiency, and assess their socio-economic impacts. We carry out detailed studies on electricity grids, grid emission factors, tariff systems etc.

Our experts develop integrative energy concepts and action plans for our partners (corporate, regional, municipal, local). Involvement of local stakeholders and strong local ownership are crucial for us. In order to achieve this, we design attractive civic participation models.

Climate Mitigation

We support policy makers in developing, analysing and improving climate policies, emission reduction strategies and related legislation. For this, we offer consultancy and analyses on different climate policy scenarios, carbon reduction potential, evaluation and design of sectoral approaches and their socio-economic impacts (e.g. Low Carbon/Emission Growth strategies). We offer assistance in international climate negotiations and for setting up national carbon frameworks and infrastructures. We also develop new carbon mitigation methodologies and standardized baselines for our partners. Moreover, we advise industries, private companies and other stakeholders in dealing with climate related policies, frameworks and legislation.
