Support for Academic Exchange and Stakeholder Meetings in the Field of Renewable Energies
Ecologic Institute initially supported the Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) and since the beginning of 2014 the Federal Ministry of Economics (BMWi) in the preparation and implementation of networking meetings and workshops in the field of renewable energies. During the events new findings from research projects funded by the ministries are presented to national and subnational policy-makers as well as to other scientists.
Since 2014, the Ecologic Institute also supports the Federal Ministry of Economics in the facilitation of the electricity market platform - a workshop series for stakeholder engagement. In particular, Ecologic Institute supports the facilitation of the working grops on "renewable energy" and "European electricity market integration". As part of the technical assistance, Ecologic Institute creates energy market factsheets for each EU Member State as well as Switzerland and Norway. The fact sheets contain the most important facts and figures on the country's energy system and grid, its electricity market, its energy and climate policies, including support schemes for renewable energies, and the status of energy market liberalisation.
