International Energy Policy and Markets

The aim of this research is to develop an interdisciplinary understanding of international developments in energy markets, policies and regulations.

Within this broad scope, the main focus will be on the European level and the development of the EU’s Internal Electricity Market (IEM). In investigating the IEM our aim is to understand and translate European-wide developments in terms of their impacts on (and opportunities for) Scottish and UK energy system transition, including wholesale markets and trading, infrastructure development, system balancing and reserve, and low carbon investment.
