Economics of Energy Infrastructure

Energy economics is a huge scientific subject area which includes topics related to supply and use of energy in societies. Due to diversity of issues and methods shared and applied with a number of academic disciplines, energy economics does not present itself as an independent academic discipline, but it is an applied sub discipline of economics.

With growing complexity in the global energy economy, and the increasing advent of unidentified risks, it becomes more difficult to attract and include the various range of investments needed to address the existing energy deficit. In order to acquire further financing through traditional and non-traditional sources of debt and equity, the emerging physical and technological risks must be more extensively and better understood to enable long-term investment decisions that deliver a resilient energy infrastructure. This conclusion must be robust with regard to different possible futures driven by technology evolution, emerging risks and global policy developments.
