Substudy report 2 encompasses 31 technology reports, which where elaborated within the research project "Technologien für die Energiewende" (Technologies for the Energy Transition). For each technolology field the development status and perspectives of the technologies were described and the need for publicly funded research and development (R&D) was identified. The analysis of the different technologies and the evaluation of R&D requirements was based on a multi-criteria assessment. Each field of technology was assessed using 12 evaluation criteria ("set of criteria"), which focus on the contribution to climate and industrial policy goals, the positioning of German companies in an international context as well as system compatibility. Aspects of societal acceptance and the state of R&D in an international context were also taken into account. The systematic criteria-based approach assures that a decision on the funding of R&D projects can be made in line with overarching objectives of (energy) policy.
Part 1 encompasses the technology reports from the areas of renewable energies, conventional power plants, and infrastructure.
