Research Field:



Wind energy is the backbone of renewable energies in Europe. The high fluctuation of this energy source is one of the main problems to be solved. Accordingly, complementary technologies and smart power grids are promising approaches.

  • Wind Structures

    The most important energy source from the field of renewable energies in Europe is wind. Currently, wind can still be interpreted as a stochastic variable. Accordingly, we improve our understanding of wind structures with mathematical and statistical tools.

    Energy Economics

    Wind energy represents an important future economic sector due to the increasing interest in renewable energy worldwide. For this reason, wind turbine performance prediction is an important task for economists. Therefore, the field of energy economics is in a state of flux and offers a variety of new research questions.

    Energy Trade

    Wind energy is gaining an ever-increasing share in the electricity mix of many countries. Our goal is to estimate the wholesale price and thus provide planning certainty in the markets and reduce the impact of wind energy fluctuation. For these analyses, we treat offshore and onshore wind energy as variables to be considered and their impact on the European Energy Exchange. Using these models, we can identify various parameters and how they affect wholesale electricity prices.
