We work on a broad range of energy, climate and environmental economy and policy issues. The spectrum of our activities encompasses applied basic research, development of scenarios and forecasts, analysis of policy measures and political and business consultancy.
Our analytical work is based on empirical models and methods which have been used both domestically and internationally for many years and are regularly updated. A key focus is on the macroeconomic analysis of different developments and policy options.
In addition to modelling tools, GWS has developed IMAGINE, a graphical user interface which enables our customers to run simulations autonomously and to access a comprehensive data inventory.
