Energy & Resource Economics Group

The UCL Energy & Resource Economics Group brings together UCL researchers whose work considers the economic aspects of energy and resource demand and supply.

Our interests relate to the economics of energy and resources, including:

  • market competition
  • market integration
  • the micro- and macro-economic impacts of renewable generation
  • the economics of renewables
  • the integration of resources in the energy and power systems
  • economic policy initiatives
  • technological innovation and costs
  • market failures and policies to avoid these
  • the influence of economic forces on the demand and supply of energy and resources

Our aims are to:

  • support internal and external collaboration with our economists on research studies, multidisciplinary projects and proposals
  • promote the research in energy and resource economics
  • provide support to group members developing expertise in these research areas, including PhD students
  • establish an expert circle of economists in this area
  • create a platform to explore the implications for practice of our research
  • offer a contact point for economists in this area

Please contact Dr Giorgio Castagneto-Gissey to register your interest in joining the group or its meetings and events or the mailing list.
