• Energy/ Environment


The Institute for Economic Policy at the University of Cologne (iwp) does research regarding energy and environmental policy. An overlap of these two areas exists primarily in the area of climate policy, which is the core area of our basic research in this field of research  
In the area of environmental policy, the iwp considers in how far harmful emissions can be decreased in an efficient way by using market based instruments. Moreover we study possible obstacles in the political sphere.

In the area of energy policy, the iwp considers in how far the goals of the federal government are principally able to reach consensus and how these goals can be set in place in an efficient way.
