Energiewende and international aspects – opportunities and challenges for German politics and industry
The project in cooperation with adelphi Research looked at international aspects of the German Energiewende. GWS has focused on analyzing global value chains in renewable energy technologies and identified opportunities and challenges in international trade for the German industry. Different scenarios have been analyzed with the economy-energy-environment model GINFORS_E. Results show how different developments will influence value added and production through deployment of renewable energy sources.
