The overriding objective of the research group “Transport and Energy” is to determine the impacts of electric vehicles on energy systems and material flows, which is achieved through techno-economic analyses. We define a techno-economic analysis as an interdisciplinary analysis incorporating technical, business, economic, socioeconomic and ecological aspects, which in our case is supported by agent-based simulation models or energy and material flow models.

Special expertise:

  • Electric Mobility
  • Environmental Economics, Climate Change and Road transport
  • Modelling 
  • Econometrics
