Renewable energy

Dissemination strategies for renewable energy sources are of key relevance for sustainable energy systems. In our work emphasis is put on the derivation of efficient promotion strategies and an evaluation of financial incentives as a dissemination tool. The major technologies investigated are: Wind, PV, Solar-thermal systems and biomass applications. Furthermore, in international co-operations systems e-think analyzes future perspectives of RES and conducts economic evaluations regarding the employment and GDP effects of various renewable energy carriers.
