Evidence-based assessment for the development of the German energy transition (Evidenzbasiertes Assessment für die Gestaltung der deutschen Energiewende (Ariadne))

From electricity supply to industry to the Paris climate goals, from individual sectors to the bigger picture: with the Ariadne project, the Stiftung Umweltenergierecht along with leading research institutions, participates in a comprehensive research process to shape the energy transition. The objective of the three-year project is to better comprehend the impact of various policy instruments in order to be able to develop socially viable energy transition strategies. The Stiftung Umweltenergierecht dedicates its jurisprudential research work to central issues in the energy and climate sector that lie at the interface of European and German law. These include aspects of carbon pricing, industrial competitiveness and the future expansion of renewable energies.
