The managing board of the Research Center for Energy Economics (FfE) consists of an executive committee, the executive board and other members. At the time of their election or reelection, the honorary members of the managing board are usually working in executive positions in the energy economy or industry.
On average, about 20 staff members are working at the Research Center for Energy Economics (FfE). Apart from the management – represented by the scientific director, managing director and project manager – graduated research associates from the diverse faculties in engineering and science as well as employees in administration and practical engineering represent the staff of the Research Center for Energy Economics (FfE). Additionally, students from different universities and advanced technical colleagues work at the FfE on a temporary basis for an internship or their bachelor-, diploma-, master thesis.
The Research Centre for Energy Economics e.V. (FfE) is a non-profit association with members from the energy industry, industry, science and administration as well as private members. The membership fees of these personal and corporate members cover a small part of the basic costs.
The FfE has no basic state financing, which makes it independent of energy policy requirements and directions. The research work of the FfE is financed exclusively by grants from the clients - often combined with public subsidies. This ensures that demanding and energy-neutral research projects are carried out that are closely linked to market-oriented issues.
In February 2001 the “enwikon Concepts in Energy Economics GmbH” was founded being affiliated by 100 % to the FfE e.V. Since January 2008 it holds the title “Research Association for Energy Economics mbH”.
The Research Association for Energy Economics mbH conducts energy audits, measurement analyses in buildings and industrial enterprises and develops local and regional energy concepts.
