Our team members, David Andrés-Cerezo and Natalia Fabra, have been awarded a research grant by Fundación Iberdrola aimed at supporting research projects related to the development of renewable energies, the protection of the environment and the efficiency of the energy system.
David and Natalia will work on a project entitled “Storage in Electricity Markets: Investment Incentives and Regulation”. The goal of this one year project is to study the key role of storage technologies in guaranteeing the development of a decarbonized electricity market. Using both theoretical and quantitative methods, they will analyze whether the current economic and regulatory systems are powerful enough to boost the required investments. Also, they will explore regulatory alternatives needed to align private and social incentives for storage investment.
We will publish the output of this research at http://energyecolab.uc3m.es/research-lines/
