Her research activities concentrate on the evaluation of climate and energy policy strategies. From 2004 until 2009 she was Professor for environmental economics at Humboldt University Berlin. She got an award from DAAD and was honoured in 2006 as top German Scientist from the German research foundation, Helmholtz and Leibniz Association. In 2011 she was awarded with the Urania Medaille as well as B.A.U.M. environmental award for best science. She publishes her research results in high level scientific journals and acted as scientific representative for the research theme "Energy" on the "science year 2010" organised by the German Ministry of Science. She has recently published two highly recognised books to illustrate the economic impacts of climate change and energy policy. In February 2013, she published her book "Kampf um Strom" in which she describes the myths of the energy debate. In December followed the English version "The battle about electricity".

    In 2016 Claudia Kemfert was appointed by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety as a member of the German Advisory Council on the Environment. Claudia Kemfert advised EU president José Manuel Barroso in a "High level Group on Energy and Climate", and she acts as an external expert for the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC). Claudia Kemfert is member of the High Level Expert Group of the EU Commissioner for Environment and Sustainability and of the Advisory Group on Energy of the European Commission (DG Research) as well as a member of the Club of Rome. She furthermore acts as jury member for several significant sustainability prices. She was appointed by Norbert Röttgen (CDU) as shadow minister for Energy in North Rhine-Westphalia in 2012 and by Thorsten Schäfer-Gümbel (SPD) as energy expert in Hesse in 2013.

    Claudia Kemfert studied economics at Oldenburg, Bielefeld (Germany) and Stanford University (USA). Claudia Kemfert worked for the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) (Italy) and Stuttgart University (Institute for Rational Energy Use). She gave lectures at the universities of St. Petersburg (2003/04), Moscow (2000/01) und Siena (1998, 2002/03).
