Energy Economics


The Energy Economics Group is formed by ten researchers, with a multidisciplinary background, whose research interests have a common thread: the analysis of the several economic sectors using the most recent advances in economic theory and experimental economics. The activities performed by the group have focused on the study of different energy sectors, on the development of models in the area of Industrial Organizations, and on the use of the tools provided by Experimental Economics to improve the understanding of regulatory policies and market design.

Research Threads

At the present the group research lines are:

  • Regulación and competition in the Energy Sector: market organization, investment in capacity, vertical integration, future markets
