Biography

The academic research of the Chaire EEM will be characterized by a plurality of approaches while remaining vigilant that the methodological standards of the best international journals (Energy Journal, Energy Policy, Energy Economics, Electricity Journal, European Review of Energy Markets ...) are respected. The problems and methods of econometrics, industrial economics, game theory and institutional economics will receive special attention in order to analyze and understand the current status and possible future trajectories of the European electricity industry.
