October 4th, 2022 – Press Release – Energy Transition
The expert commission for energy transition monitoring (ExpKom) is starting its work with a new composition with an analysis of the electricity market design. In the summer, the Federal Cabinet approved the appointment of four scientists for four years (July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2026) by the Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection, Robert Habeck. Andreas Loechel (Chair of Environmental/Resource Economics and Sustainability at the Ruhr University Bochum) and Prof. Dr. Veronika Grimm (Chair of Economics, esp. Economic Theory, at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg). Prof. Dr. Anke Weidlich and Dr. Felix Christian Matthes. Prof. Weidlich holds the Chair for Energy Distribution Technologies at the Institute for Sustainable Technical Systems (INATECH) at the Albert Ludwigs University in Freiburg. She conducts research in particular on the topics of energy systems, decentralized energy supply, system integration, flexibility and smart grids. Matthes is research coordinator for energy and climate policy at the Öko-Institut. His main areas of activity include in particular the topics of designing electricity markets, evaluating energy technologies and instruments in energy markets and decarbonization strategies. In addition to accompanying the monitoring process for the energy transition, ExpKom is responsible for the Federal Government’s reviews of the coal phase-out in accordance with the Coal Power Generation Termination Act (KVBG). to evaluate and make recommendations that will be published. Due to the currently very dynamic overall energy situation and its particular energy policy challenges, the next monitoring report on the energy transition is planned in a modernized, adapted format for summer 2023. The work of the ExpKom now starts with an analysis of the current situation and the further development possibilities of the electricity market design with a view to the increasingly important renewable energies. The commission will present the first results by the end of 2022.
