The junior research group analyses, amongst others, the question on how global consumption of coal can be reduced by adequate energy and climate policy to contain the consequences of climate change. A special focus lies on opportunities to structure a socially acceptable coal phase-out for Germany. Building on this analysis, the transferability of results will be analyzed for the case study countries India, China, South Africa and Columbia. In parallel, the implications for the international coal market will be investigated. The completion of a PhD is intended.
