    Abstract

    Iran ist eines der größten Erdölförderländer und verfügt über riesige Erdgasreserven - und hat doch ein Energieproblem. Im Zuge des steigenden Energieverbrauchs droht das Land zum Energieimporteur zu werden. Ein Ausweg wird in der Kernenergie gesucht, was durch den Fokus auf den militärischen Aspekt ein großes Konfliktpotenzial birgt. In seiner Dissertation entwickelt Nikolaus Supersberger Szenarien eines diversifizierten Energieangebots in OPEC-Staaten am Beispiel Irans - Strategien eines auf klimaschonenden Energieträgern basierenden Umstiegs. Die Ergebnisse sind in diesem Reader zusammengefasst. Es wird deutlich, dass die Kernenergie für eine langfristig sichere Energieversorgung nicht notwendig ist. Er zeigt das große Potenzial zur Nutzung erneuerbarer Energien und dass eine vollregenerative Stromerzeugung möglich ist. Zudem wird offenbar, dass der Einsatz erneuerbarer Energien und von Energieeffizienz die Ölexporte Irans wie auch anderer OPEC-Staaten deutlich strecken würde. -- Iran is one of the biggest oil-producing countries and is provided with major natural gas resources. Nevertheless, Iran has got an energy problem. In the wake of an increasing energy consumption, the country might get forced to import energy. Nuclear energy is seen as a way out, but one that also bears a big conflict potential regarding the military aspect. Nikolaus Supersberger develops Scenarios of a diversified energy supply in OPEC states taking Iran as an example - Strategies that are based on a change to climate-friendly energy carriers in his dissertation Szenarien eines diversifizierten Energieangebots in OPEC-Staaten am Beispiel Irans - Strategien eines auf klimaschonenden Energieträgern basierenden Umstiegs. This reader summarises the results. It becomes clear that nuclear energy is not necessary for a long-term and secure energy supply. The reader shows that renewable energies have an enormous potential and that a completely regenerative energy supply is feasible. In addition, renewable energies and energy efficiency would expand Iran's and the oil exports of the other OPEC states.
