What is the impact of renewable energy on the electricity market? What are the social risks and benefits of sustainable consumption? These and other topics are addressed in the first workshop organized by the new Centre for Energy Economics Research (CEER) of the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) of the University of Groningen (RUG).
The workshop on Tuesday 17 March (3-5 pm) focuses on what kind of research is done at the FEB and to engage with the stakeholders of CEER: university, business, and government. Application is open, until 10 March.
CEER focuses on the economic analysis of the role of energy (oil, gas, electricity, heat) in societies. The researchers apply state of the art academic knowledge to important societal issues and cooperates with external stakeholders in order to contribute to solving these issues.
