Abstract

This book provides an in-depth analysis of the energy transformation
process ongoing in Germany, now commonly referred to as energiewende, in
the European context, with a focus on the electricity sector. It
presents an expert look at the origins of the German energiewende, its
concrete implementation, its impacts within the European context as well
as medium and long-term perspectives. The authors, internationally
recognized energy, electricity, and climate economists at the German
Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and Berlin University of
Technology, conclude that the first years of the energiewende have
successfully laid the foundation for a renewables-based electricity
system in Germany, but that challenges remain in relation to
decarbonizing the electricity system and phasing out nuclear energy. The
authors also provide ground-breaking insights to inform energy policy
in other countries and at the European level. In the outlook, the
authors explore upcoming issues, such as coupling between the
electricity and other sectors, and behavioral changes of industry and
households. The book addresses readers in the energy industry, energy
and climate policymakers, regulators, and others interested in the low
carbon energy system transformation in Germany, Europe, and worldwide.
