The Center for Energy Markets (CEM) at the Technical University Munich is dedicated at advancing research in the field of energy economics and electricity market economics, including new developments around renewable energy provision. Energy markets are at the heart of one of the biggest societal challenges of our time - creating a sustainable, reliable and affordable energy provision. CEM brings together economics, finance and engineering approaches to offer applied research contributions to topical real-world energy sector questions.
One of our affiliated research teams with MIT has published a paper on the energy consumption of cryptocurrencies, showing how energy-intensive digitalisation can be. Ulrich Gallersdörfer, Lena Klaaßen and Christian Stoll's paper has been recently published in Joule.
