The aim of this project is to analyse the investment activities and their impact on the national economy as a result of the development of renewable energies. The future total investments in manufacturing plants in Germany will be determined and modelled until 2030. Via a primary data collection companies will be interviewed with respect to their economic development until 2014.
Based on an economic model, the investment volume of the renewable-energy-industry will be projected until 2030.
