Research groups at the Workgroup for Economic and Infrastructure Policy (WIP)

Research at the WIP is organized into six working groups. Information on the individual groups can be found on the individual pages.

Research area Nuclear Power (AT-OM)

Research group Fossil-Exist (EX-IT)

The focus of the Fossil Exit research group's teaching and research is on the transformation of fossil energy systems to 100% renewable energy systems in order to limit the increase of the global average temperature to a maximum of 1.5°C without exceeding other planetary boundaries.

Research group Microenergy Systems (ME-SY)

The ME-SY research group is dedicated to understanding, improving, innovating, and communicating equitable and sustainable global energy system development and transitions by taking a micro perspective.
