Energy Markets analysis could be carried out from different perspectives. The main idea behind this summer school would be to focus on the economics of energy markets and on related quantitative models based on linear and nonlinear processes for measuring and forecasting volumes and prices. The focus of the course will be on electricity markets, although reference will also be made to natural gas markets.
Some recent developments about the introduction of renewable sources on the electricity grid and to the economic feasibility of electricity storage will conclude the course.
The main goal of the school will be to illustrate methods and approaches with detailed examples using real data and to provide participants with a set of economic models and econometric-statistical tools to perform reliable and original analyses.
The summer school is intended for PhD students, post-docs, junior and senior faculty members, professionals.
The aim is to provide a detailed overview of the main methods used in empirical and theoretical research in economics and in the analysis of energy markets.
Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss and present their own research projects with leading researchers in the relaxed and open atmosphere of the Dolomites.
