The goal of becoming a CO2-neutral society in 2050 requires a significant restructuring of our society. Political initiatives that can support a green transformation of our energy sector and reduce the consequences of climate change are crucial for this to succeed.
We research how information, regulation and financial instruments can change the behaviour of companies and citizens in a greener and more sustainable direction and identify which societal barriers prevent this. Massive investments must be made in green technologies and new infrastructure. A prerequisite is developing methods to understand and increase citizens' acceptance and co-ownership of these investments.
Climate change has significant consequences for our society. We develop methods that map where the damage occurs and which citizens, industries and financial institutions are affected. Furthermore, we identify which initiatives and policies should be implemented to limit the socio-economic consequences of climate events such as floods and forest fires.
