Areas of application are resource management, climate protection and adaptation, and immission control law. In energy law, the focus is on nuclear law and the law of renewable energies. Alexander Roßnagel is co-editor of the "Neue Zeitschrift für Energierecht" and the publication series "Forum Energierecht" and chaired the German Nuclear Law Symposium four times from 2000 to 2007. Third-party funded projects are and have been funded, for example, by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Volkswagen Foundation, the Federal Ministry of Research, the Federal Ministry of the Environment, the Hessian Ministry of the Environment and the Federal Environmental Agency. Alexander Roßnagel is a member of the CompetenceCentre for Climate Change Mitigation and AdaptationCompetence Centre for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation (CliMA) - at the University of Kassel.

The research work - primarily on electronic legal transactions, information security and data protection - is being conducted by the "Project Group for Constitutionally Compatible Technology Design" (provet) under the direction of Alexander Roßnagel and Gerrit Hornung . The interdisciplinary research projects generally pursue two goals - on the one hand, to design technology in a way that is compatible with the law, and on the other hand, to further develop the law in a way that is compatible with technology. They are supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Volkswagen Foundation, the Daimler Benz Foundation, the Federal Ministry of Economics, the Federal Ministry of Justice, the Federal Ministry of Research, the State of Hesse (LOEWE) and the European Union, among others.
