Cutting-edge research across disciplines
“We face unprecedented regulatory, social, economic and technical challenges. There is a need for effective coupling of the electricity, heat and gas sectors, electrification of transport, active demand-side management and much more. The ongoing war of aggression on Ukraine and the associated threat of insecurity in European gas supply have further complicated the path to climate neutrality, but have also made it clear that the decarbonization of our energy systems can only succeed with innovative interdisciplinary approaches to solutions,” Sonja Wogrin emphasizes. She heads the Institute for Electricity Economics and Energy Innovation at Graz University of Technology and is the spokesperson for the newly founded Research Center for Energy Economics and Energy Analytics (ENERGETIC). This latest Research Center of TU Graz opened on April 14, 2023 and supports the transformation of energy systems on the way to complete decarbonization with interdisciplinary cutting-edge research.
