Other student opportunities

We are committed to the training of future generations. Time to time we do offer internships
, semester projects and master thesis topics. Currently the following themes/projects are available...

Development of a web based tool for Swiss and EU energy/electricity scenarios
  • EEG undertakes numerous long term energy and electricity scenarios using energy economic models. We aim to develop an interactive web-based tool to synthesize and present the energy scenarios in our website.
  • Good programming skills (in visual basic or equivalent) and basic understanding of energy sector is desirable.
For further detail, please contact Ramachandran Kannan

INTERNSHIP: Compilation and statistical analysis of power generation and price data for power market models
  • Support the Energy Economics Team in several projects to model the European electricity market and the behavior of market players!
  • We offer a three months internship at PSI for a Master student with a background in energy-economics and preferably also knowledge in statistical methods. Scoping on the European power market, you will analyse electricity price and generation data with the statistical software package R. You will gain insights in power market mechanisms while working with real datasets. Optional, there might be the possibility to get involved in energy modelling and understanding of Nash-Cournot optimization models.
