The global consumption of resources and energy continues to rise unabated. At present, it is only beginning to be possible to reconcile economic growth and environmental concerns. Sustainability, which combines economic growth with ecological goals, is therefore one of the greatest challenges of our time. In the Research Field “Energy and Environmental Economics ” we are investigating how the present and the future can be made more sustainable.
