DTU PhD Summer School in Energy Economics: Energy Consumption

Energy consumption is a critical issue for energy transition and society, as it impacts a wide range of aspects, including economic growth, climate change, decarbonization, environmental sustainability, security of supply, human health, and energy justice. Energy is essential for a variety of functions, including running homes and the operation of industries, and transportation. The efficient use of energy and the adoption of sustainable energy sources are crucial for reducing the adverse effects of energy consumption and promoting sustainable development. Therefore, there is a need for educated human resources that do research and develop policies in this area. The Energy Economics PhD summer school will take a role in teaching how to use economic theory, energy modeling, and computational tools for research to address these contemporary global challenges. The School will take place on 26-30 August 2024. More information here

EAERE Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics on “Data science in environmental economics research”

EAERE, the Institute of Economics, Faculty of Economic Social Sciences, and the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change at the University of Graz, Austria organise the 2021-2025 EAERE Summer School series in Resource and Environmental Economics for postgraduate students, locally organised by the University of Graz.

The 2024 EAERE Summer School will address the topic Data science in environmental economics research and will take place from 22 to 28 June 2024 in Castle Seggau, close to Graz, Styria, Austria.

Objectives

Today, the availability of data coming from numerous different sources and formats, e.g.; remote sensing data, geospatial data, very large and/or high frequency datasets, allows to empirically analyze problems in environmental economics in an unpreceded detail. In order to process and use this data, a large set of different tools need to be applied. The 2024 EAERE Summer School will focus on the intersection of environmental economics and data science, with a particular emphasis on the increasing use of data science and novel statistical methods in environmental economics research. This includes the use of machine learning, spatial statistics and data analysis, remote sensing, the use of “alternative data” and big data applications. The goal of the summer school is to address new developments in these fields, to highlight their potential applications in environmental economics, and to foster the implementation of novel empirical methods in environmental economics research.

Faculty and respective tentative focus

  • Paul A. Raschky (Scientific Coordinator) – Professor at the Department of Economics and current Director of SoDa Labs, Monash University
  • Yanos Zylberberg – Associate Professor at the Department of Economics at the University of Bristol
  • Ed Rubin – Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at the University of Oregon
  • Joëlle Noailly – Associate Professor at the Department of Spatial Economics at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam /Senior Lecturer Geneva Graduate Institute
  • Ludovica Gazze – Associate Professor at the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick
