SEFEP gGmbH; Agora Ener­gie­wende - Think Tank

Energy sys­tems world­wide are under­go­ing rapid changes. Many coun­tries have set them­selves net-zero tar­gets. While renew­able ener­gies play a pivotal role and fossil-fuel phase-out is on the agenda, coun­tries face sig­ni­fic­ant chal­lenges: grids and mar­kets, reg­u­la­tion and sys­tem integ­ra­tion, struc­tural change, and a just trans­ition. In a nut­shell, it is about rein­vent­ing energy sys­tems.

This is where Agora Ener­giewende gets involved. As a think tank, we pur­sue a global cli­mate-neut­ral energy sys­tem by the middle of the cen­tury. With around 140 employ­ees at four loc­a­tions world­wide, we com­bine research, dia­logues, and pub­lic rela­tions in our daily work to find answers to those ques­tions cru­cial to the energy trans­ition. In doing so, we work closely with part­ners in numer­ous coun­tries. And - very import­antly - we act inde­pend­ently and free of eco­nomic or party-polit­ical interests.

Energy com­pan­ies, as the own­ers and oper­at­ors of both fossil fuel and renew­able assets and sup­port­ing facil­it­ies, their clean and just trans­ition can max­im­ize the effect­ive­ness of global emis­sions reduc­tion efforts, given the scale of their emis­sions and impact on soci­ety at home and abroad. Agora Ener­giewende has been imple­ment­ing cor­por­ate decar­bon­iz­a­tion work since 2021 by enga­ging stake­hold­ers via dia­logues and con­duct­ing desk research.
