On behalf of the German Institute for Tourism Research (DITF) at the FH Westküste – Univerity of Applied Sciences, DIW Econ, in cooperation with the German Economic Institute for Tourism at the University of Munich (dwif), has calculated the ” Economic Impact of Tourism” for Schleswig-Holstein (with reference year 2019) based on a Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) for the third time after 2015 and 2017.
The current study by DIW Econ, in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Claudia Kemfert, DIW Berlin, commissioned by the Bavarian SPD state parliamentary group, examines how the Free State of Bavaria can achieve a just transition into a emission neutral future. For this purpose, the study discusses specific social-ecological measures for the upcoming political reorientation in the sectors of energy, transport, buildings and industry.
The study “Maritime value-added and employment in Germany” makes it possible for the first time to make a scientifically substantiated assessment of the overall economic significance of the industry for Germany. The results can serve as a trend-setting basis for discussion for political decisions at all federal and regional levels.
The study was conducted on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) by a consortium consisting of ISL (Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics), Fraunhofer CML, ETR (Economic Trends Research) and DIW Econ.
DIW Econ was commissioned by the Schleswig-Holstein Regional Association of the German Wind Energy Association to investigate the economic significance of onshore wind energy in Schleswig-Holstein.
This study analyses, on the one hand, the investments in new wind energy plants and on the other hand, the revenues and costs arising from the operation and maintenance of existing wind energy plants. It will thus determine the effects of the wind energy sector on regional value-added, employment and tax revenues in Schleswig-Holstein. The overall effect of the three indicators can be divided into direct, indirect and induced effects.
DIW Econ has for the second time comprehensively examined the importance of the tourism industry in North Rhine-Westphalia based on internationally comparable calculation standards in cooperation with the Institute for Management and Tourism (IMT) at the West Coast University of Applied Sciences and dwif-Consulting.
The central results confirm the growing importance of the tourism industry for NRW. Compared to the study published in 2013, tourism consumption in 2017 showed a nominal growth of 11.6 per cent.
