The BEI works in five research fields named: energy economics, geopolitics, energy systems analysis, energy efficiency and renewable energy.
The research methods of the BEI are characterized by an integrative approach, handling of cross sectional projects and flexible project organization. Our interdisciplinary team of economists and political scientists, engineers, physicists, and architects work together and provide quality and neutrality. Additionally, in many projects we contribute our knowledge to professional networks of national and international experts. Graduations and international visiting scientists contribute to a continuous expansion of professional competences of the institute.
The research fields are explained in detail on the further sub sites.
