Future Field: Energy Market Design

2020-01-13 The energy transition requires a completely new market design. Households are becoming prosumers, energy supply can often be thought of more locally, supply is becoming more volatile, new risks must be included, and opportunities must be exploited. Our joint project with Wolf Fichtner, Martin Klarmann, and Nora Szech on these topics will be financed by funds available to KIT from the federal government's Excellence Strategy.
