The purpose of this grant is to support research on the management of risk in energy markets. Potential topics of research include methodical approaches to short-term scheduling (stochastic/robust/reliability constrained unit commitment), generation expansion planning, modeling risk aversion, optimal operation of combined cycle units, optimal positioning in gas forward markets, as well as optimal topology control and investment planning in transmission networks. ENGIE funds the Chair. Research is done at CORE and in ISBA (as partners within IMMAQ). Claude d'Aspremont (CORE, UCL), Francis Delannay (EPL, UCL), Pierre Devolder (ISBA, UCL) and Anthony Papavasiliou (CORE, UCL) are in charge of the implementation.
Professor Papavasiliou, as the Chair holder, is in charge of the resource management.
