    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Atomkraft – Eine nachhaltige Technologie für den Klimaschutz?

    Im Vorfeld der 21. Klimakonferenz in Paris ist nicht nur in Deutschland die Diskussion bezüglich der Nachhaltigkeit der Atomwirtschaft in den Fokus der Öffentlichkeit gerückt. Neben Fragen der Wirtschaftlichkeit und Sicherheit, stehen dabei zunehmend auch Herausforderungen für die langfristige Entwicklung von Unternehmensstrategien im Mittelpunkt, Laufzeitverlängerungen, Neubauten sowie Rückbau und Endlagerung von Atomabfällen.

    Das BSEC adressiert einige dieser Themen mit einem breiten Spektrum an Stakeholdern und lädt zu einer offenen Diskussion im internationalen Kontext ein. Dieses Mal findet die Veranstaltung in deutscher Sprache statt.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Gas Supply Security in an Energy Union

    Gas Supply Security is a central pillar of a ‘successful’ Energy Union package. However, member states differ in their assessment of risks, exposure to risks, and support for proposed measures like joint gas purchasing or emergency response measures. In the seminar we want to explore potentially different perspectives at the German and Polish example and discuss:

    -        What are the national circumstances, and what particular     interests result?

    -        What instruments are preferred for energy security in different countries?

    -        How to strengthen trust and solidarity as basis for ‘one European voice in global affairs’?

    Workshop Project Workshop RESOURCES and Green Paradox
    Modeling advances of resource markets in times of the fossil renaissance

    DIW Berlin and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) would like to discuss the latest progress in their research projects on energy resource markets and climate policy. The recent boom in unconventional natural gas and oil extraction in North America as well as the ever increasing thirst for energy in Asia have led to a true "renaissance" of fossil fuels. In the workshop it will be discussed how academic climate economics can deal with this new situation and which lessons can be learned from modern models, for example on innovative climate policy measures.

    Conference Berlin Conference on Electricity Economics

    Both Germany and Europe are on the path toward lower-carbon energy systems: In 2011 the German government has agreed on the transformation of the energy sector towards a sustainable energy system; the so called “energy turnaround” (“Energiewende”). Mastering the challenges associated with the energy turnaround is of special relevance as it involves a transformation of most parts of the infrastructure in the energy sector. On the supply side flexible conventional generation and power storage technologies might be important for the integration of intermittent renewable energy sources. The transmission as well as the distribution network will have to be reshaped to meet the new conditions. Furthermore, demand side management and efficiency measures might be additional elements within this transformation process. Finally, the transformation of the energy sector will include a revision of the institutional setting in particular the market design to meet the challenges and to achieve an efficient integration of increasing shares of renewable energy. However, the transformation cannot be done in isolation on a national level and requires cooperation on a European level, which has identified an ambitious lower-carbon target in its “Energy Roadmap 2050” itself.
    The research project "Model-based analyses for the electricity sector design to favor the integration of renewable energies in the energy transformation" (MASMIE) is carried out by DIW Berlin in conjunction with German and international partners and funded by the Mercator Foundation (2012-2015). After numerous successful workshops within the MASMIE-project we want to continue the constructive dialogue and cordially invite you to our


    Berlin Conference on Electricity Economics - Modeling the Energy Transformation – Germany, Europe, and Beyond
    October 10, 2013
    DIW Berlin (Schumpeter Hall, Mohrenstraße 58, 10117 Berlin)



    The aim of this conference is to address the challenges of the transformation for the energy sector and to discuss them among researchers with some additional input from policy and industry. The scientific council of the conference consists of Pio Baake, Franz Hubert, Claudia Kemfert, Friedrich Kunz, Karsten Neuhoff, Thure Traber, Christian von Hirschhausen, representing DIW Berlin as well as Humboldt University and Berlin University of Technology.
    On the two days following topics will be addressed:

    • European Market Integration
    • Market Design, Capacity Instruments
    • Carbon Markets
    • Generation and Transmission
    • Network Pricing and Expansion
    • Network Regulation
