At Ecologic Institute Sabine Lund worked on the project Economic Implications of Regulation in the Carbon Market, analyzing the trading strategies and market access channels of plant operators covered by the EU ETS. As part of the project, a representative survey offered detailed insight into the actual tradind behavior of the plant operators, which now forms the basis for an evaluation of the different access channels as perceived by the operators.
Previously, she supported the project Green Finance - Strategies and Instruments for the Financing of Ecological Modernization, investigating innovative financing concepts and instruments found in other countries and examining how they may be transferable to the German context. She furthermore worked on the project Sharing Water-related Information to Tackle Changes in the Hydrosphere - for Operational Needs (SWITCH-ON), which analyzes the currently untapped potential of open environmental data to address water issues.
