Energy markets around the world are in a phase of transition. Energy and environmental policies and regulation play a major role in this transition process; including renewable support, emission regulations, energy efficiency and demand reduction approaches, and supply security mechanisms.
This topic cluster represents two main directions of the FoNEW team research:
- Conceptual research: Aiming on insights on efficiency and incentive structures we conduct policy design assessments based on economic theoretic concepts. A particular focus is on the interaction of different energy policies.
- Quantitative assessments: Using numerical modeling selected policy, regulation, and market design approaches are tested for specific markets. This topic stream is strongly interlinked with the FoNEW research on electricity markets.
