ENERDAY 2016 - 11th Conference on Energy Economics and Technology



"Energy Efficiency and Demand Response"

Thank you to all participants of ENERDAY 2016

On 8 April 2016 the Chair of Energy Economics at Technische Universität Dresden organized the 11th Conference on Energy Economics and Technology (ENERDAY 2016). The conference addressed challenges with regard to energy systems, markets and policies. The overarching theme of this year´s conference was “Energy efficiency and Demand Response”.

This year a record number of over 160 participants were in attendance. National and international representatives from science, industry and politics participated and contributed in large measure to the success of ENERDAY 2016. The feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive. The general sentiment from those attending was that the conference was a very interesting and well-organized event.*

We would like to thank all participants and especially the keynote speakers and presenters for their interesting presentations and providing for a lively exchange of ideas and experiences. We truly appreciate the great interest in our conference.

Special thanks go out to the sponsors who made this successful event possible: DREWAG and Robotron.

We hope ENERDAY 2016 has been a memorable experience for all of you and hope to see you again at EEM 2017 and ENERDAY 2018.

Award ceremony at ENERDAY 2016


One of the highlights of this year’s ENERDAY was the award ceremony at the conference dinner. The association enerCONNECT - Verein zur Förderung wissenschaftlicher Arbeiten in der Energiewirtschaft an der TU Dresden e.V. awarded four cash prizes of 150 Euros:

The two cash prizes for the best scientific contribution were awarded to

  • Tugba Somuncu for her presentation entitled "Can Energy Efficiency Save Energy? An Economy-Wide Rebound Effect Simulation for Turkey" and
  • Tobias Boßmann for his presentation entitled "Future load shift potentials of electric vehicles in different charging infrastructure scenarios".

This award was first introduced at ENERDAY 2015 and is selected with the help of a scientific advisory team. The contributions are evaluated based on various criteria including thematic relevance with the main topic of ENERDAY, applied scientific methodology, informative value of the results as well as the presentation skills of the speaker.

The enerWard for the two best master or diploma theses at the Chair of Energy Economics was awarded to

  • Simon Schulte for his thesis “Development of a European natural gas market model for the security of supply analysis – Potential impacts of the Russia-Ukraine conflict on the European Union security of supply” and
  • Philipp Feister for his thesis “Strategic Behavior in Global LNG Markets: Outlook for the Asia-Pacific Region”.

Master and diploma students are encouraged to submit their thesis (finished in the previous year) to be considered for the enerWARD. The two prize recipients are then invited to present their results at the annual ENERDAY conference. Congratulations to the winners!

Additionally, we would like to thank all speakers for their very interesting presentations, which were essential in making ENERDAY 2016 a tremendous success!
