A smooth transfer to sustainable energy in Europe will require major changes to the electricity market – for example because the supply of energy through solar panels or wind turbines is less reliable or can result in significant price fluctuations. Which changes to the electricity market will prove most beneficial? Prof. Machiel Mulder, Professor by Special Appointment in Regulation of Energy Markets at the University of Groningen, has been awarded a research grant of almost EUR 200,000 from NWO, with co-funding from a number of societal partners.
Prof. Mulder works at the Faculty of Economics and Business. He will conduct the research together with Prof. Marco Aiello and Prof. Jacquelien Scherpen of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Prof. Bert Scholtens of the Faculty of Economics and Business and Prof. Frank Hindriks of the Faculty of Philosophy. This collaboration will be facilitated by the Energy Academy Europe. The societal partners involved are TenneT TSO B.V., Energie Nederland, Netbeheer Nederland, VEMW and the Consumentenbond.
