Sustainable deployment of renewable energies with multiple environmental impacts – Policy strategies to address environmental trade-offs of the German energy transition

The expansion of renewable energies in the electricity sector is essential in order to achieve Germany’s climate protection targets and advance the energy transition. However, the reconstruction of the electricity system also involves (new) challenges. In the MultiplEE research group, we examine how the regulatory framework in Germany can be designed in such a way that the expansion of renewable energies is as environmentally compatible as possible – taking into account people, nature and the landscape.
