Energiewirtschaftliches Institut an der Universität zu Köln

ewi has taken another big step in its development

Dear visitors, dear friends and supporters of ewi, dear Alumni,

Ewi has taken another big step in its development and will continue to meet the ever increasing demands and expectations of a leading research institute in energy economics.

Since June 2015 a new non-profit organisation entitled ewi Energy Research & Scenarios has joined alongside the “An-Institute”. Within this organisation, the practical research of the Institute and third-party projects for business and politics are bundled. The new organisation will continue to work closely on scientific issues with ewi, which will now mainly concentrate on fundamental research and supporting the doctoral program. Under the motto "strengthening strengths" ewi aims to consolidate its position at the forefront of energy-economic research as well as uphold its central role in addressing current topics throughout the energy industry. The important synergies between these two activities will be maintained.

In order to secure long-run funding for ewi, a new partnership program has been established. Every institution and business is now able to become involved to support energy-related research at the University of Cologne. We invite you to learn about the new possibilities to support the research activities taking place here at ewi. Should you have questions about our new partnership program, please feel free to contact us.

We are confident that the new structure and corresponding partnership program constitute a solid foundation for ewi's further development. Under the new structure, ewi will continue to make valuable contributions to research in the field of energy economics.
