I am studying the organization and regulation of energy markets. Several questions are addressed:

  • Which regulatory instruments are necessary to obtain a sustainable energy system? How can we organize the market such that we will use the optimal mix of renewable and conventional technologies
  • Do energy firms have market power? If abuse of market power is a problem, which steps can the government take to reduce market power? Are standard competition policy rules sufficient or should we rely on sector-specific regulation?
  • Will a healthy and competitive energy sector deliver a secure energy supply system? What is the role of the government?
