Matthias Futterlieb, M.A.


Matthias Futterlieb is a research associate at the Center for Technology and Society in the project “Impediments to increasing the share of renewable energies in the grid-connected energy supply in Germany” (Renet) since November 2010.

His scientific work is focused on energy and environmental policy. His research areas include the analysis of energy supply, particularly the electricity and heat production from renewable energies as well as the associated analysis of the political, legal and technical framework conditions on the regional, national and European level.

Prior to working at the CTS, Matthias Futterlieb was involved in the thematically related project "Renewable Energies in Germany’s Electricity Market – A Biography of the Innovation Process" at the Environmental Assessment and Planning Research Group of Technische Universität Berlin. During his master’s degree studies in Environmental Management at the Freie Universität Berlin, he concentrated on energy policy issues, particularly on renewable electricity and heat generation and on the financial support mechanisms for renewable energies. Previously, he completed the bachelor's degree in European Studies at Maastricht University (NL) with a focus on European law. He is fluent in German and English and has good knowledge of Dutch and French.
