Energy, Mobility and Environment (EME)
Globally intermeshed challenges for energy provision, mobility, and care of the environment have emerged from the depletion of fossil resources (‘peak oil’) and from climate problems. Economic issues addressed in this context range from the developing of energy markets and energy policies, the evaluation, promotion and dissemination of innovative “green” technologies, over the sustainability of energy users’ behavior, and mobility behavior, up to the planning and managing of efficient and environmentally sound product and information flows in value creation networks. One pertinent example is that of electromobility with all its risks and opportunities for current and future undertakings. It calls for new business models and the developing of new value creation networks that integrate consumer behavior.
