The Chair "Models of Housing and Energy Policy" investigates policies and political processes in the fields of energy, climate, environment, and housing. We are interested in the complex interactions between society, the state and the economy at various levels of analysis (from global to local) to explain policy choices and implementation. Our goal is to generate a better understanding of how preferences and interests relate to socio-economic and institutional contexts.
TU Darmstadt and the Institut Wohnen und Umwelt (IWU) established the Chair to intensify their collaboration in the fields of housing, energy, and urban research. We teach courses focusing on these research areas as well as on methods of empirical political science.
