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.
