This year's Autumn School at the TU Berlin will take place from October 12th to 16th 2020. The offer is directed at PhD students and postdocs who wish to extend their knowledge on different economic methods applied to address questions of climate change.
Participants can choose one out of three courses, which are focused on different types of methods:
The course “Applied Econometrics in Environmental and Sustainability Economics” addresses micro econometric empirical methods. “Computable General Equilibrium and Energy System Analysis” introduces students to numerical modeling of energy systems in a general equilibrium context. Lastly, “Stochastic Electricity Market Modeling“ explores electricity market design in distribution networks. In addition, several activities are part of the program to provide participants with a chance to engage in dialogue with stakeholders from politics, industry and civil society. The Autumn School is organized by Christian von Hirschhausen (TU Berlin / DIW Berlin) in participation with Karen Pittel (ifo).
