- Three years ago, the new degree in Business Administration - Energy Management was launched at SDU Esbjerg. Now the first graduates are finished - and with great success. Read more about it here.
- Paper published in Journal of Regulatory Economics. The paper shows both theoretically and empirically that there is economic substance in regulators’ attempts to keep regulated prices stable.

- Paper published in Nonlinear Dynamics and Econometrics. The paper proposes a new estimation approach when treatment is endogenous and persistent.

- Paper published in Journal of Cleaner Production. This paper investigates public acceptance on peak and off-peak pricing in China. We investigate what are drivers and barriers for their acceptance.

- Paper published in Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments. Replacing all oil boilers with renewable energy technologies by 2035 is part of the national energy strategy 2050 in Denmark.This study investigates the drivers for decision makers when adopting different renewable heating technologies.

- Paper published in Energy Research & Social Science. This paper investigates how framing affect consumers’ willingness to buy green electricity using a contingent valuation method. The results show that consumers displayed stronger intention to buy green electricity when the situation was framed in a positive manner (i.e., most Danish households have already bought it), as compared to the situation framed in a negative manner (i.e., only a few Danish households have bought green electricity).Full Reference: Yang, Y.,Solgaard, H.
