The research and teaching activities of the Chair of Energy Management and Sustainability focus on the integrative analysis of the economic, ecological and social aspects associated with the provision of energy services at company, municipal, national or global level. Therefore, in addition to the analysis of liberalized energy markets, the research focus of the professorship includes in particular the integrated modelling of complex energy systems under climate protection or resource restrictions.
