Carbon-neutral and socially just Bavaria – Proposed measures for a social climate transformation in Bavaria

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.

Maritime value-added and employment in Germany

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.

The nine-point plan: employment and climate change effects of a green recovery plan

On behalf of Greenpeace, DIW Econ GmbH, together with the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and the Forum Ökologisch-Soziale Marktwirtschaft (FÖS), has for the first time calculated the employment and climate protection effects of selected green economic stimulus packages. For this purpose, nine packages of measures for a climate-oriented economic stimulus package in the energy, transport, buildings, industry and land-use sectors were compiled from a total of 285 collected proposals for economic stimulus measures: The nine-point plan. The packages of measures contained in this plan allow both short-term employment effects and a medium and long-term resilient, climate-friendly economy.ise.

The economic importance of onshore wind energy in Schleswig-Holstein

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.

Market design for efficient transmission of offshore wind energy

A study commissioned by Ørsted Offshore Wind, published as DIW Berlin -Politikberatung kompakt 136.

The expansion of offshore wind energy is a strategic component of Germany’s energy and climate policy. Therefore, according to the targets of the German government, 15,000 MW of offshore wind energy capacity should be available in Germany by 2030. Suppose offshore wind energy is to make a successful contribution to the transformation of energy systems. In that case, it will be necessary not only to build offshore wind farms but also to transport the electricity produced efficiently on land.
