Recent presentations and publications

Hans Auer has been with the Energy Economics Group (EEG) at Technische Universität Wien (TU-Wien) for more than 20 years. After studying electrical engineering (1996, MSc), he graduated in the field of energy economics (2000, PhD and 2012, Venia Docendi). Since the beginning of his academic career, he has dealt with the various aspects of energy market design and grid/market integration of renewable energy technologies both in applied research (coordination of a multitude of EU and national projects) as well as teaching/supervision of students, graduates and doctoral candidates. He also has a significant amount of scientific publications and conference contributions (worldwide).

A selection of publications is listed below, a full list can be found at TU-Wien's publication database (link)
