Policy, Economics and Risk

The Policy, Economics and Risk theme encompasses research in the Faculty of Economics, Judge Business School, Department of Land Economy, Department of Geography and the Faculty of Law, among other institutions and focuses on the following areas:

Economics and policy includes the analysis of decarbonisation, energy security and affordability of energy with particular reference to the operation of gas and electricity markets.  The Energy Policy Research Group is particularly active in this area and their key areas of work include regulation and markets , technology and innovation, governance and politics, and climate change policy.

The Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR) undertakes interdisciplinary work directed towards the scholarly study of the interactions between energy, environmental and economic systems as these relate to the challenge of reducing the risks from climate change, primarily through mitigation.

The study of risk includes energy infrastructure investments, energy security and regulation, and how to embed these risks into project planning and market structures.
