Lina-Marie Dück



As a lawyer and Fellow at Ecologic Institute, Lina-Marie Dück focuses on the legal aspects of environmental policy development. She works primarily on projects concerning energy markets and the integration of renewable energies, but also on other topics in environmental law; her working languages are German (native language), English and French.

At Ecologic Institute, Lina-Marie works mainly for the Energy Team and Ecologic Legal. In current projects, she is investigating the legal aspects of the crisis resilience of the EU ETS on behalf of the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt) and the options for reducing methane emissions for the Environmental Defense Fund Europe (EDFE).

Prior to this, she analyzed the possibility of capacity markets in Germany and the smart meter rollout in Germany as part of the EU Horizon 2020 research project "Transformative Policies for a Climate Neutral European Union (4i-TRACTION)". In other projects, she dealt with restrictions on PV expansion in the building sector and supported the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate (BMWK) in a project consortium in the development of an industrial electricity price and as part of the accompanying research process for Germany's major energy research program SINTEG, which tested innovative solutions for a fully renewable energy system. She was also involved in the revision of soil protection law on behalf of the German Environment Agency (UBA).

Before joining Ecologic Institute, Lina-Marie Dück worked for the law firm Geulen&Klinger in Berlin in the field of environmental and climate protection law. Prior to that, she was a judge at the Administrative Court of Cologne for almost four years, with responsibilities in the areas of water protection and nature conservation law, telecommunications and asylum law, among others. As a trainee lawyer, she worked in particular in the field of criminal public defense and corporate consulting for start-ups.

Lina-Marie Dück passed both state examinations in law with distinction. She completed her law degree at the Bucerius Law School Hamburg (Germany) with a focus on public commercial law in 2012 and received an interdisciplinary European Master of Law and Economics (EMLE or LLM) from the universities of Hamburg, Bologna (Italy) and Aix-en-Provence (France) in 2014. Her master's thesis focused on the complexity of regulations in the pharmaceutical market and their impact on the behavior of market players. During her studies, Lina-Marie Dück received a scholarship from the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
