Security of electricity supply, i.e. ‘keeping the lights on,’ has become a major concern for regulators and policymakers over the last two decades. In his presentation, Professor Erik Larsen will discuss some of the issues observed in integrating renewables and sustainability in (deregulated) electricity systems, in Europe and South America. He will touch on how behavioral modeling can be used to help in understanding unanticipated side effects, in this type of market.
