Stockender Wind-Ausbau: Klimaziel trotz Kohleausstieg gefährdet
02.07.2020 | Der Ausbau von Windenergie an Land stockt in Deutschland. Konventionelle Anlagen und Importe müssen daher einen größeren Beitrag zur Stromversorgung leisten. Eine aktuelle Analyse des EWI zeigt, was das für die Strompreise, die EEG-Umlage und das Klimaziel bedeutet.

Coal phase-out: EWI develops methods for determining possible compensation payments for electricity intensive industries
04.03.2020 | In a new report, EWI scientists examine the effects of the coal phase-out on wholesale electricity prices and other electricity cost components. In a further step, concrete methods will be developed to estimate the possible increases in electricity prices.

How the coal exit affects frequency stability
02.03.2020 | Because conventional power generation is declining - for example due to the coal phase-out - the stability of the power grids will no longer be fully secured in the future without countermeasures. This and what could be done about it is shown in a new study by scientists from EWI and the consulting firm ef.Ruhr.

EWI analysis: Germany will probably miss the 65 percent target
10.01.2020 | Renewable energies should cover 65 percent of electricity consumption by 2030. This is the plan of the federal government. However, a team of the Institute has calculated that the share of renewables could be only about 46 percent.

EWI-Studie: Gasversorgung in der EU ist gesichert
10.12.2019 | Auch im Winter bleibt es warm: Die EU ist auf einen möglichen Stopp der russischen Gaslieferungen gut vorbereitet. In Deutschland würden die Gaspreise moderat steigen, die Versorgung wäre aber gesichert, zeigt eine Studie des Energiewirtschaftlichen In-stituts (EWI).

A CO2 price in the buiding sector is not enough
18.09.2019 | On behalf of the Zentraler Immobilien Ausschuss e.V. (ZIA, German Property Federation), EWI and FiFo Cologne jointly analysed how CO2 pricing works and which additional political instruments are necessary to do justice to the special features of the building sector.

EWI study: Climate target 2030 can be reached with coal phase-out
27.08.2019 | On behalf of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalisation and Energy of North Rhine-Westphalia, the EWI conducted a study on the effects of the coal phase-out path proposed by the "Commission on Growth, Structural Change and Employment".

New study: EWI analyses the potential development of gas demand and supply
23.05.2019 | On behalf of INEOS, EWI analysed the potential development of gas demand – in case the current level of ambition concerning the expansion of renewable energies and the decrease of reduction of energy consumption cannot be accelerated. This would result is a rising demand for natural gas and an increasing import share. The study further looks into commodity procurement options for natural gas.
