With energy and climate markets and technologies continuously changing, profound knowledge is key to all decision making. Ecofys supports authorities and corporate organisations alike in meeting the energy and climate challenge of the 21st century. The strategic studies, reports or market assessments we conduct provide valuable and reliable information on the latest developments and anticipated trends.

In this section you will find an overview of reports that are published or (co)written by Ecofys.

  • Climate Change 2014: Mitigation of Climate Change

    IPCC Working Group III Contribution to AR5

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has published a report on mitigation of climate change as part of its Fifth Assessment Report. Part of the work is a sector-by-sector assessment of the potentials for greenhouse gas emission reduction...

  • The potential for recovering and using surplus heat from industry


    Together with Element Energy and Imperial College London, Ecofys developed a novel approach to quantify the potential for recovery and re-use of industrial waste heat. It involves first-of-a-kind databases describing “archetypical” characteristics...

  • Biofuels for aviation


    As aviation is the fastest growing transport modality worldwide, its GHG emissions would increase with 600% by 2050 if no measures were taken. Therefore, the industry has committed to halve its emissions by 2050 compared to 2005 levels. This ambition can...

  • Energy Status of Hamburg’s Building Stock

    Comprehensive Survey and Mapping

    For the City of Hamburg, Ecofys created an extensive study on the current heat demand of the city’s building stock and the connected energy supply system. In this study, the Hamburg residential building typology has been updated and expanded to include...

  • Critical materials for the transition to 100% sustainable energy


    WWF has recently published a study conducted by Ecofys on possible supply chain bottlenecks in a transition to a fully sustainable energy system as represented in The Energy Report. The...

  • Heat Pump Implementation Scenarios until 2030

    An analysis of the technology potential in the building sector of 8 EU countries

    Aim of this study is to quantify the potential of heat pumps to save CO2-eq emissions and energy and to increase the use of renewable energy in the EU’s building sector until 2030. The study assesses related impacts on investments and energy costs....

  • Cost-optimal level-modelling

    Insights into the current and future building standard in Germany

    The aim of the research project "Cost optimal level - modelling" was to determine cost optimal levels of new and existing buildings and to compare them with the current minimum building standard in Germany (EnEV and EEWärmeG). This included a consideration...

  • Rotterdam CCS Cluster Project – Case Study on Lessons Learnt


    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an important option to reduce CO2 emissions. Currently, different projects are being developed worldwide to make the technology commercially available. CCS is regarded a complex technology as it combines different...
