Seminar Energy Markets

Yearly in the winter term, Prof. Dr. Grimm, Prof. Dr. Liebensteiner, and Prof. Dr. Zöttl offer a seminar on Energy Markets. The seminar will be held as a block course during the semester. The language of the seminar is English.

The seminar can count as „Wirtschaftstheoretisches Seminar“ (WiSo, Master) or „Seminar Energy Markets“ (WiSo, Master, ASC).

The objective of the seminar is to discuss both model-based and practical problems and developments on the energy markets on the basis of economic theory.
