Investigation of renewable energy investment conditions in the MENA region

The dissertation project examines the investment conditions for renewable energy in the region of North Africa and the Middle East (MENA).

The aim here is to develop incentives and conditions for investments, in particular of solar thermal power plants (concentrated solar power, CSP). The project is being developed as part of the PhD program of the Wuppertal Institute and in conjunction with the Schumpeter School of Business and Economics at the University of Wuppertal.

Investigations on investment decisions at RUs

The research project "Path dependence in strategic investment decisions of energy supply companies" examines different investment strategies of energy suppliers in relation to renewable energies. The project is being carried out by the Good Energies Chair of Management of Renewable Energy at the University of St. Gallen and funded by the Nagelschneider Foundation. The social science research project pursues the goal of highlighting the different decisions of energy companies when investing in renewable energies and exploring their background.

Improvement of the concrete in biogas tanks

Development of an acid-resistant composite material for biogas plant construction. Analysis and determination of the damage processes that occur at the construction of biogas plants during operation. For this purpose, a new composite material for the construction of biogas plants is to be developed in order to increase the useful life of the plants and to reduce the financial / temporal overhead during the construction and operation phase of these plants.

Self-adaptive high-resolution PV forecast in the distribution network based on PV reference power measurement and GIS data

With the addition of decentralized generation and storage systems, precise and spatially resolved performance forecasts are becoming increasingly important for smart home applications and network operators. Although weather forecasts have improved in recent decades, even modern weather models find it difficult to resolve the incoming global radiation accurately (Heise, 2002) and thus deliver precise performance forecasts. A finer-meshed measurement network is therefore necessary in order to take better account of local influences. In Germany, such a monitoring network in the form of more than 1.4 million PV systems already exists. Because the power delivered by them allows important conclusions about the local meteorological conditions, and especially about the incoming global radiation. Approximately 25% of all PV systems (Rentzing, 2013) are already networked at the metering point operator and / or manufacturer portal (SMA Solar Technology AG, 2013) and can therefore be monitored.
