About the Summer School

DTU CEE Summer School started as an initiative of the Energy Analytics & Markets (ELMA) group of Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) in 2016. Sponsored by Mosek ApS, EES-UETP, and the CITIES project, the last three summer schools 2016-2018 have been widely successful. Attracting about 55 attendees each year and with distinguished invited lecturers from the US and Europe, they fully covered the attendees’ expectations. Summer school 2018 received a very positive feedback by all participants. 100% of the participants would recommend DTU CEE summer school to others.

The videos of all the lectures of the DTU CEE Summer School 2018 are available online here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiXnS2QbefSshsXQvieK_vA/videos
