Environmentally relevant research at the Honorary Professorship for energy law and economics

Sven-joachim Otto 2543
Prof. Dr. Sven-Joachim Otto

Professor Otto focuses on the developments in the various energy markets, especially against the background of the currently advancing transformations at the interfaces to the sectors of mobility / traffic (traffic transition), real estate (heating transition) and industry. In the broadest sense, digitization is viewed as an enabler for the necessary transformation processes towards resource-efficient, sustainable and competitive business models. Against this background, Prof. Otto also deals with the necessary structural policy impulses that set a framework for necessary transformation processes, such as the Coal Phase-Out Act, the amendment to the EEG or the Fuel Emissions Trading Act.
