The project EnergyTransition analyses options to comply with the targets of the EU Energy and Climate Package in an interdisciplinary
approach. 25 storylines and technology wedges are developed and analysed in a bottom-up approach starting from energy services.
The technology options are analysed with respect to their effects in the energy system as well as with respect to their effects
on energy flows and emissions. The analysis of changes in the energy system is complemented by an economic analysis comprising
an input-output analysis in order to reflect employment and output effects from the investment phase and an analysis of changes
in operating costs due to the technology wedges. A microeconomic cost approach for selected technology wedges complements
The project EnergyTransition is funded by the Austrian "Klima- und Energiefonds" and is carried out within the research programme
"Energie der Zukunft".
