Innovative generation and storage technologies, energy markets and energy law, citizens' participation and consumer behaviour - some 600 university and non-university institutes are engaged in energy research in Germany. To this we must add the research and development departments in various companies.
ESYS pools and classifies the expertise of different disciplines and prepares and edits it for political and public discussion. More than 160 experts from academia and industrial research are involved in the project in an honorary capacity. Experts from the technical and natural sciences, economics, law, and the social sciences collaborate in interdisciplinary Working Groups.
Experts in the field are likewise involved: Throughout the process, there is a constant exchange between the Working Groups and representatives from politics, the industry and civil society organisations - from the development of the topics to the presentation of the results. Their work is supported by a Project Office.
