As of June 1st 2013, Machiel Mulder (PhD) has been appointed endowed professor of Regulation of Energy Markets at the Department of Economics, Econometrics and Finance of the Faculty of Economics & Business at the University of Groningen. Professor Mulder has been affiliated with the FEB since 2011, as a visiting researcher. He is considered a specialist in the field of energy and environmental economics and regulating network industries.
The endowed chair addresses the question of how well energy markets function and which (regulatory) measures governments could take in order to realize improvements. This involves the complete energy chain, so not only wholesale markets but also transport and distribution, as well as retail markets. With this new chair the Faculty of Economics & Business supports one of the key topics of the University of Groningen, namely, that of energy. The chair is supported by the Netherlands Authority for Markets and Consumers (ACM).
Machiel Mulder studied Economics at the University of Groningen, on which he graduated cum laude in 1985. During that time he was already working as a research assistant at the Faculty. He obtained his doctorate at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, with his thesis “Sector exploration and financial analysis, a simulation model for the horticulture under glass”.
