Karoline Rogge is Lecturer in Energy Policy and Sustainability, Senior Research Fellow in the Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand (CIED) and Co-Director of the Sussex Energy Group. Karoline joined SPRU in November 2013 from the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (Fraunhofer ISI) in Karlsruhe, Germany.  Her  interdisciplinary research combines insights from environmental economics, innovation studies and policy analysis to study the link between policy and innovation in the energy sector. Karoline's research ranges from evaluating the innovation impact of single policy instruments, such as the EU emissions trading system – the topic of her PhD at ETH Zurich – to analyzing the effects of comprehensive policy mixes for promoting the low carbon transition of the energy system. Regarding the latter, Karoline has led the GRETCHEN project (2012-15) investigating the influence of the policy mix for renewables on technological and structural change in Germany. She was Fraunhofer ISI’s principal investigator of the European project PATHWAYS, in which she performed a multi-level analysis for the electricity sector in Germany and comparing it with the UK. Karoline contributes here policy mix expertise to the Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand (CIED) and is also investigating industrial policy and institutional change for smart energy transitions within the SET project. Karoline has been involved in advising the German government since 2004, including as a member of the scientific secretariat of the German Emissions Trading Stakeholder Group, and prior to that has acted as a consultant to the OECD and World Bank. Since 2016 she is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
