Course Overview

This Advanced Energy Economics training course explores the theoretical and empirical perspectives on individual and industrial demand for energy, energy supply, energy markets, and public policies affecting energy markets. It discusses the oil, natural gas, electricity, nuclear power, and renewable sectors and examines energy strategy, taxation, price regulation, deregulation, energy efficiency and policies for controlling emission. Overall, it sheds light on how applied economics and policy tools can effectively shift the global energy sector toward renewable and clean energy sources to mitigate climate change, while promoting economic development and energy security.

The energy sector is facing many challenges today. These challenges are mainly related to environmental concerns, security of supply, contractual complexities and, of course, digitalisation trends. Therefore, this course will mainly focus on the economic analysis of supply and demand, energy global balances and outlook, energy value chains economics, pricing mechanisms, oil & gas economics, electricity and renewable energy economics, digitalisation of the energy industry, and finally the economic impact of environmental/climate policies on oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear, power, and renewable sectors.

All the above-mentioned elements will be covered in this training. First, the delegates will receive essential information about advanced topics in energy economics. Then, through practical case studies and discussions, they will get an in-depth overview of the global energy business’s economic, financial, and even geopolitical aspects and its current and future challenges.
