Workgroup for Economic and Infrastructure Policy (WIP)

Research group Institutional Economics and Infrastructure Systems (IÖ-IS)

The research group of Institutional Economics and Infrastructure Systems (IÖ-IS) at the Chair of Economic and Infrastructure Policy (WIP) is engaged in teaching and research on the application-oriented analysis of economic policy issues related to infrastructure systems. One focus is the transformation of the energy and transport sectors against the background of the goal of climate neutrality. Typical topics dealt with in this context concern the institutional design for the provision and financing of both network infrastructures and complementary infrastructure facilities in the aforementioned sectors, as well as the design of incentive and regulatory regimes for the related service provision. Furthermore, fundamental overarching issues such as the design of climate policy instruments or the organization of procurement by the public sector will be addressed. In terms of methodology, we draw in particular on (new) institutional economics as well as on complementary findings, e.g. from industrial economics or other areas of (applied) microeconomics.
