Under the motto “Energy challenges for the next decade”, scientists discussed effective strategies for a sustainable EU energy policy at the 16th IAEE European Conference in Ljubljana. The central topic of this conference will be to assess the impacts and identify the main challenges of these events for all energy segments to ensure a sustainable policy for the next decade.
Charlotte Geiger, Paul Lehmann and Philip Tafarte from Team MultiplEE presented their research results and showed how the regulatory framework in Germany and Europe can be designed to promote the transformation of the electricity system sustainably, taking into account the multiple environmental effects of renewables. In this context, Paul Lehmann presented the results of the MultiplEE-expert workshop on “Spatial Distribution of the Expansion of Wind Energy on Land until 2030 – Sustainability Conflicts and Synergies”. In addition, Philip Tafarte presented modelling results on conflicting objectives between electricity production costs, residents and species protection. Charlotte Geiger discussed whether the spatial promotion of renewable energy should be more spatially differentiated in the future.
