Energy Economics and Regulation

Energy Economics and Regulation

DTU Management - Sustainability DivisionResearch - Energy Economics and Regulation Section

We develop policy instruments, regulatory frameworks and market designs that facilitate the green energy transition in an efficient socio-economic way.

Our research supports policymakers and businesses in making informed decisions in the realm of energy-economy relationships.

The Energy Economics and Regulation section has a disciplinary focus on applied economics within energy systems and markets. We contribute to the development of energy economics by linking technological and behavioral aspects with economics using state-of-the-art methodological approaches.

The overall objective of the section is to study policy instruments, regulatory frameworks and energy market designs that facilitate the green transition in a socio-economic efficient way, especially with respect to large shares of variable renewable energy in the energy system, energy savings and the resulting CO2 reduction potentials.

The main scientific challenges include integration of energy markets, energy market designs, analyses of support instruments for deploying renewable energy (e.g. auctions), flexibility in energy demand and energy demand forecasts.
