The University of Cologne and the Institute of Energy Economics at the University of Cologne (EWI), Germany, invite applications from advanced Master and Ph.D. students for
Cologne International Energy Summer (CIES) in Energy and Environmental Economics
July 17 – July 21, 2017, Cologne, Germany.

The Cologne International Energy Summer (CIES) aims at bringing together distinguished scholars and young researchers in the field of energy and environmental economics to discuss research advances and relevant policy issues. The CIES is a Summer School with emphasis on scientific interaction and exchange of thoughts. In particular, it provides a platform for graduate students to present and discuss their work with senior researchers and other graduate students. Young researchers are given the opportunity to develop a network and are exposed to current issues in their research field.

The CIES consists of two complementing parts. The first part contains lectures by Prof. Richard Green (Imperial College London, UK, on “Electricity Markets of the Future”) and Prof. Werner Antweiler (University of British Columbia, Canada, on “Investment in Electricity Generation and Transmission; Renewable Energy Finance and Markets"). In the second part participants will be presenting their own work and receive feedback from the lecturers and senior researchers.
