Research Topics and Working Areas

Wolf-Peter Schill is deputy head of the Department Energy, Transportation, Environment at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and leads the research area “Transformation of the Energy Economy”. After studying environmental engineering at TU Berlin and Macquarie University Sydney, he obtained a doctoral degree in energy economics at TU Berlin. His research focuses on renewable energy integration, energy storage, electric mobility, and other sector coupling strategies. His methodological focus is open-source power sector modeling. At DIW Berlin, he works in various research projects with grants from German federal ministries and the European Commission. His work lead to numerous articles in leading international peer-reviewed journals such as Nature Energy, European Economic Review, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Energy Policy, and others. He is an active member of the Leibniz Research Alliance Energy Transition and the National Platform Future of Mobility.
