10th PhD Seminar Natural Gas co-organized by DIW Berlin

Report of December 18, 2009

DIW Berlin engaged once more in the scientific exchange of PhD students and post docs. For three years now, Dr. Franziska Holz, researcher in the Department Energy, Transportation, Environment, has been organizing the regular meetings of young scholars from economic, political and engineering sciences that do research on natural gas markets. After meetings for example in Moscow, Oxford and Berlin, this year's autumn seminar took place on December 11, 2009 in Leuven (Belgium) at the Energy Institute of KU Leuven. The topics of discussion included methods such as modeling and efficiency analysis, and current developments in the European natural gas market such as the emergence of gas hubs and the regulation of pipeline storage. The next PhD Seminar Natural is scheduled for May 2010 in Florence at the European University Institute; more information can be found on the website.
