ewi Energietagung 'German Energy Policy: Outlook and Perspectives' - in Kooperation mit F.A.Z. und BDEW

Gegenwärtig werden die Unternehmen der Energiebranche von einer zunehmenden Dynamik erfasst. Allerorten werden Geschäftsmodelle überprüft und neu konfiguriert, und die Incumbents durch neue Marktteilnehmer und junge Unternehmen herausgefordert. Treiber dieser Entwicklung ist nur teilweise die politisch verordnete 'Energiewende' - mindestens ebenso bedeutsam sind die stetig wachsenden Möglichkeiten digitaler Technologien.

Am 26. September 2018 kamen rund 135 Teilnehmer aus den Bereichen Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik zusammen, um sich zu den vielfältigen aktuellen Fragen der Energiewirtschaft und  -politik auszutauschen.

Mehr Informationen finden Sie in unserem Flyer oder auf der Tagungswebseite.

UoC Forum Project

We completed the project 'Market design and regulation for stochastic electricity supply chains'. It was funded as a University of Cologne Forum in the framework of the Excellence Intitiative, and aimed at providing answers to relevant yet unresolved problems in the field of market design and regulation of stochastic electricity supply chains by bringing together specific energy market know-how and methods from supply chain management. Moreover, our activities deepened and extended energy-related research activities of the UoC with a sustainable and long term perspective.
