Accompanying Research: Smart Energy Showcases – Digital Agenda for the Energy Transition (SINTEG)

December 2016 to November 2021

With the funding programme SINTEG, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) seeks to implement practical tests for the energy supply of the future and the digitalisation of the energy sector. In five showcase regions new and innovative solutions, such as for example smart grids, are tested and exemplary solutions for a secure, efficient and climate-friendly energy supply with high proportions of intermittent power generation on the basis of wind and solar energy are developed. Ecologic Institute is part of the accompanying research funded by the BMWi and manages the work package on regulatory framework and standardisation.Read more

Analysis of Selected Climate Protection Scenarios for European Countries

This paper explores six climate protection studies, namely for France, Italy, Poland, Sweden, United Kingdom and Germany. The authors, among them Ecologic Institute's Lena Donat, analyze objectives, results, modeling approaches, main assumptions and input parameters. The inclusions of long-term strategies in the Paris Agreement and in the European Commission’s proposal for a new regulation on the "Governance of the Energy Union" make this analysis very topical. The analysis is available for download. Read more

Economic Implications of Regulation in the Carbon Market

October 2015 to December 2017
In the last few years, regulation of European financial markets has evolved – primarily through the adoption of the second EU Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and further EU Directives and Regulations, including those on market abuse and money laundering. While the carbon market is not their primary target, these new developments nonetheless have an impact on the European trade of emissions allowances within the framework of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS). In the context of this project, Ecologic Institute and its partners, FutureCamp and Professor Weber of the University of Zürich, investigates how the regulation of the financial market has developed recently, how these changes influence market access for actors in the carbon market and how the behavior of plant operators may change – or have changed already – in reaction to the new legal guidelines.Read more

Frameworks for Regional Co-operation: The EU

The European Union (EU) is more than the sum of its parts. With the rise of nationalistic ideals and populist sentiment within and outside its borders—now more than ever, it stands for far more than an experiment in regional cooperation. A contentious history notwithstanding, EU climate and energy policy in particular may serve as a beacon in these turbulent times. In a new publication, authors Benjamin Görlach, Matthias Duwe and Nick Evans of Ecologic Institute, describe the intertwined roots of European energy and climate policy and argue that if EU countries and institutions can...Read more

Developing 2050 Decarbonization Strategies in the EU

Insights on Good Practice from National Experiences
National long-term (2050) climate strategies have received increased attention in European policy debates in the past two years. The Paris Agreement also invites countries to develop such strategies. This study (a collaborative effort between IDDRI and Ecologic Institute) looks at five existing 2050 strategy processes in the EU and assesses what lessons they hold and how they fit within the emerging 2030 governance framework. The study is available for download.Read more
