Modelling the future development of renewable energy technologies in the European electricity sector using agent-based simulation Zur Erlangung des akademischen Grades eines Doktors der Wirtschaftswissenschaften (Dr. rer. pol.) von der Fakultät für Wirtschaftswissenschaften des Karlsruher Instituts für Technologie (KIT) genehmigte DISSERTATION von Dipl.-Wi.-Ing. Anne Mirjam Held Tag der mündlichen Prüfung: 07.12.2010 Referent: Prof. Dr. rer. pol. W. Fichtner Korreferent: Prof. Dr. rer. Pol. C. Weinhardt   Abstract Increasing the share of renewable energy sources (RES) in final energy consumption forms an impor-tant part of the EU's energy and climate strategy due to the potential contribution of RES to climate protection and security of supply and to the economic competitiveness of the energy system. Several factors substantially influence the future prospects for the use of renewable energy technologies (RET); these include the combination of regionally heterogeneous resource availability and electricity generation costs, referred to as cost-resource curves. Most of the existing RET are not yet economi-cally competitive with conventional conversion technologies. To try and make renewable energy tech-nologies (RET) economically viable for investors, various policy support schemes, such as feed-in tariffs or quota obligations, have been applied for over a decade.
