The Research Unit Sectors and Technologies develops strategies for climate neutrality in the energy, transport and industrial sectors, taking into account their impact on energy and resources.
The scientists focus in particular on the energy demand side and analyse above all, but not exclusively, energy-intensive industrial sectors and their energy demand structures with regard to three central targets: Possibilities for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, potentials for implementing resource-efficient and circular (demand-side) value added systems and their implications for final energy demand and resource use. Together with relevant actors from the sectors, the scientists develop transformation knowledge in order to implement medium-term strategies for climate neutrality in the sectors under consideration.
The Research Unit Sectors and Technologies comprises five thematic priorities:
