The German electricity system

This study applies the Multi Level Perspective (MLP) on the German electricity system. It combines niche and regime analyses to assess the feasibility of a transition in the German electricty system. For this, the following niches are considered: solar PV, on- and offshore wind, bioenergy, CFL/LED lighting, and smart meters. The regime analysis is broken down into the electricity generation regime, the electricity consumption regime and the electricity network regime.
