Title of Dissertation: "The economics of power system transitions
Modeling pathways and policies for storage, grids and renewables"

Summary
Opposing the approaching climate catastrophe necessitates a rapid transition
of power systems: Fossil fuel-based electricity generation needs to be replaced
by low- or no-carbon-emitting renewable energy (RE). This implies huge
disruptions concerning the infrastructure of power systems and their institutional
design. This thesis addresses several of the challenges associated with the transition
to RE: It studies the provision of power system flexibility by conventional
generators, storage and grid. Furthermore, it analyzes the implications of instrument
choice and policy design for an efficient RE support and the system
integration of RE.
