Vision and mission

Our vision is a global energy transition supported with research and education. Our academic mission is to contribute to this goal by advancing the understanding of future energy markets and the decarbonization of our economy. 

About us

Energy markets are at the heart of one of the biggest societal challenges of our time - creating a sustainable, reliable and affordable energy provision. The Center for Energy Markets brings together economics, finance and engineering approaches to offer applied research contributions to topical real-world energy sector questions.

Our core research areas comprise energy finance, energy price modelling and operative planning in energy markets, as well as market design, regulation and consumer and producer behavior in energy markets.

Our teaching entails a broad array of courses and seminars. We encourage students to apply for research projects for their Bachelor and Master theses. The CEM supports collaboration between students and industry both in terms of research projects and career opportunities.

The Center for Energy Markets is supported by SWM and operates within a unique environment at Technische Universität München, collaborating with various engineering and management research centers at TUM.
