The Foundation for Environmental Energy Law (Stiftung Umweltenergierecht – SUER) was created on 1 March 2011 in Würzburg. The research staff of the foundation is concerned with national, European and international matters of environmental energy law. They analyze the legal structures, which aim to make possible the necessary process of social transformation leading towards a sustainable use of energy. Central field of research is the European and German Law of renewable energy and energy efficiency. The different legal instruments aiming towards the substitution of fossil fuels and the rise of energy efficiency are analyzed systematically with regard to their interdependencies. Interdisciplinary questions, e.g. technical and economical questions, are of particular importance.
