His current research foci are political instruments to limit greenhouse gas emissions from the electricity and energy sector and their implications, the political economy and political processes of coal phase-outs, the implementation of the polluter-pays-principle in lignite mining reclamation, and the energy-saving potential of smart heating in residential buildings. In the past, Dominik has investigated support schemes for renewables in the electricity sector and their implications as well as the advantages and drawbacks of different electricity market designs.
