Since 1981, the International Association for Energy Economics has presented an annual award for outstanding contributions to the field of energy economics and its literature. This year in Groningen, our Director, Jean-Michel Glachant received the IAEE Award for Outstanding Contributions to The Profession of Energy Economics and its Literature.
Professor Glachant is the Director of the Florence School of Regulation and the Holder of the Loyola de Palacio Chair, at the European University Insitute. During his career, he has been an advisor of DG TREN, DG COMP and DG RESEARCH at the European Commission and of the French Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE), as well as the coordinator and scientific advisor of several European research projects. Jean-Michel Glachant has also been editor-in-chief of Economics of Energy and Environmental Policy (an IAEE journal) and a member of the Council of the International Association for Energy Economics.
Over the past years, Jean-Michel has been leading the transformation of our school into a European Knowledge Hub for Energy Transition. Following his vision, today the FSR delivers high-quality research, training and policy dialogue to a community of energy experts worldwide.
For all these reasons, this award makes us all very proud, but it comes as no surprise!
