Energy Finance

Awareness of risks, knowledge of how to manage them, understanding of the interrelationships.

Consistent patterns interrupted by extreme events, uniform electricity from a wide variety of energy sources and power plant types, near certainty in price relations despite volatile levels, rigid infrastructure with fluctuations in use, globalization in interaction with political efforts to achieve various forms of energy transition: Uncertainties and sharp price movements on the energy markets, in combination with the mostly long-term use of capital in the energy generation infrastructure, harbor great risk potential.

We teach Master's students in their final semester to educate them about the existence of different types of risk, their interrelationships and possible hedging mechanisms.
