Energy Market and Solar Economy

The research themes of the doctoral education in Energy Market and Solar Economy are typically holistic techno-economic approaches related to the energy transition.

The research questions are associated with smart grids, market and business models, renewable distributed energy (solar, wind, hydro and bio), energy storages (batteries, water and heat storages, supercapacitors, flywheels, power to X), demand response, integration of different energy systems (electricity, heat, cooling, gas), regulation of energy systems, management of climate change, and techno-economic modelling of the energy systems involving the above-mentioned tasks.

Enthusiasm and an interest in technology, economic calculation and mathematical modelling of optimization problems provide an excellent basis for completing a doctorate in the field.
