Energiewirtschaftliches Institut an der Universität zu Köln


Dear visitors, friends and supporters of EWI and alumni,

The Institute of Energy Economics at the University of Cologne explores issues relating to energy economy with a long-term tradition. Through applied research and teaching in the field of energy economics, as well as academically based studies for the energy industry and policy makers, we have contributed to discussions in the energy industry for more than 60 years. Our precise ambition includes: Anticipating pressing issues in the field of energy economics, exploring them with our methods and models and discussing the results together with our stakeholders in accordance with our guiding principle "Exploring energy markets - enhancing decisions".

We invite you to explore our website. Please do not hesitate to contact us, should you require any further information. We look forward to sharing ideas with you.

Kind regards,

Research Co-operation with Meteorologists

New "Emerging Group" at the University of Cologne: Energy Transition and Climate Change (ET-CC)

Felix Höffler and Dietmar Lindenberger will participate in a joint research collaboration with meteorologists from the University of Cologne, the University Bonn and the Research Center Jülich. The research will tackle question like: 

  • "How will improved short term weather forecasts affect electricity trading?"
  • "What do European weather patterns imply for security of electricity supply 
      in continental Europe?"
  • "What are feedbacks from climate change on energy demand and the productivity of renewable energy sources in the long run?"

The research is funded for three years. It is one out of four so called "emerging goups" at the University of Cologne which the University supports as part of the German "Excellence Initiative".
