Brief description

In its book “Energy transition – growth and prosperity without oil and uranium” published in 1980, Oeko-Institut presented scenarios for an alternative energy future. Decades after the publication of this study, Oeko-Institut researchers are working on a range of topics to support and drive forward the necessary transition to a low-carbon society. Based on value-oriented research, the institute provides consultancy for decision-makers in politics, industry and civil society, showing them ways of tackling the environmental challenges. The experts draw upon a broad array of scientific and research methods, develop appropriate strategies and toolkits.
