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. 2013 she published her book “Kampf für Strom” in which she describes the myths of the energy debate. In the same year folled the English version “The battle about electricity”. Her latest book “Das fossile Imperium schlägt zurück” was published in April 2017.

    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).

Since 2011 she has been 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).
