ZEW Annual Report // 2022


The ZEW Annual Report 2021 is all about climate change and the energy transition: The flood disaster in the summer of 2021 caused devastating damage in several river basins in Central Europe, once again putting the focus on the urgency of curbing global warming. We at ZEW are dealing intensively with this topic. With the help of economic methods, we analyse the emergence of environmental problems, evaluate climate and energy policy instruments to solve these problems and make economic policy recommendations. Detailed descriptions of our results and policy recommendations can be found in our focus report on climate change and the energy transition included in this year’s issue.
