Energy markets and finance

In recent years, climate and energy goals established at the international, European and national level have rapidly and profoundly transformed economies and societies around the world. Energy suppliers, financial institutions, regulators and, as of late, even central banks have been facing unprecedented challenges related to energy markets and finance. This research area tackles the complex issues resulting from these environments. Besides specialist expertise, they particularly require interdisciplinary groups of researchers. The foundation of the House of Energy Markets and Finance (HEMF) in 2015 institutionalised this research area. In addition to its scientific prestige, it has gained a remarkable international reputation by organising high-profile conferences and seminars on a regular basis. The research area excellently represents the Faculty’s strategic efforts to establish a local, regional and international academic network that promotes interdisciplinarity in research and teaching.
