ENERDAY - 9th Conference on Energy Economics and Technology - A European Energy Market?
Dresden, Friday, 11 April 2014
Technische Universität Dresden, Faculty of Business and Economics, Dresden, Germany
Political and economic sovereignty of individual countries is currently forming national energy strategies and energy supply. There are often many national strategies within the member states of the European Union. Examples are the promotion of renewable energies, the phasing-out of technologies (nuclear, fracking, etc.), capacity mechanisms, and so on. But is this efficient and necessary? Does this promote the internal European energy market or does this lead to inner European market distortions (e.g. renewables, capacity mechanisms, etc.)? Is a common European strategy more powerful in relation to our trade partners? We are interested in different federal levels of energy policy, in addition to the national and the European one also the regional level of cooperation, which may turn out to be particularly important.
The objective of the 9th Conference on Energy Economics and Technology (“ENERDAY”) is to address challenges for energy systems, markets and policies, with a special focus on the opportunities of a European perspective. Thereby contributions along the whole supply chain, from generation and transformation, via transmission and distribution up to the demand side are addressed. Particular emphasis is put on intensifying the dialogue between economic and technical issues.
Papers may be theoretical or applied, and may address the following issues:
I. Cross-sectional topics
- Energy policies and strategies, e.g. promotion of renewables post 2020 and harmonisation of promotion schemes, fracking in Europe, the role of nuclear, regulatory framework, etc.
- Market design issues, e.g. capacity mechanisms and adequacy, market coupling and market/zonal prices, impact of fluctuating renewable energies on prices, interdependencies between intraday, reserve and spot markets, etc.
- Future transmission and distribution grids, e.g. role of interconnectors and an overlaying grid structure in an internal European energy market, scenarios for grid extension, determination and assignment of transfer capacities, vertical congestions in distribution grids, etc.
- Energy efficiency, e.g. energy efficiency and the role of labelling, energy efficiency and usage of decentralized resources, energy conservation and efficiency measures in industry, market integration of decentralized power and heat systems, smart grid technologies, smart meters and smart demand, regulation, etc.
- Energy, society and industry, e.g. interaction between industry, society and energy, role of energy systems on the competitiveness of industries, energy prices in Europe, acceptance and willingness-to-pay, etc.
II. Sectoral analyses and case studies
- Electricity sector: sector design, investments, reserve and capacity markets, etc.
- Heating sector: promotion of renewables in the heating sector, efficiency measures, combined heat and power, etc.
- Transport sector: hydrogen, electric mobility, traditional fossil fuels, new mobility concepts etc.
- Natural gas and oil sector: e.g. Security of supply and European strategies, inner-European markets, etc.
- Sector coupling: convergence of electricity, heat and gas markets (power to gas, power to heat, development of gas demand, etc.),
Please send an extended abstract (one page, about 300 words, in English, including a short CV) until 3 March 2014 as word-file to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive the confirmation of acceptance at the latest by 17 March 2014. Accepted abstracts will be provided in the Book of Abstracts. A full version of the paper and presentation can be submitted until 7 April 2014 and will be provided on the website.
Date / Venue
The conference will take place on 11 April 2014 at the Technische Universität Dresden with a pre-conference dinner on 10 April 2014. Young researchers are invited to apply for the YEEES-seminar, which takes place on 9 and 10 April 2013. Further details can be found at www.yeees.net.

The Chair of Energy Economics (EE2) at TU Dresden is specialized in the development of energy systems and markets. DIW Berlin, the German Institute for Economic Research, is one of the leading economic research institutes in Germany carrying out fundamental research and policy advice, with a focus on transport, energy, and telecommunication economics. The Workgroup for Infrastructure Policy (WIP) at Berlin University of Technology is focusing on organizational models, financing, and regulation of infrastructure sectors, mainly in transport and energy. The Gesellschaft für Energiewissenschaft und Energiepolitik e. V. (GEE) is the German Chapter of the International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE).
