Copenhagen School of Energy Infrastructure (CSEI)

The Copenhagen School of Energy Infrastructure (CSEI) conducts research in tomorrow’s energy infrastructure from an economic policy point-of-view to ensure a successful transition towards a new sustainable European Energy Infrastructure based on volatile and largely renewable energy sources.


CSEI is established as a European research center at CBS’ Department of Economics and delivers expertise and new knowledge as well as education within energy infrastructure in close cooperation with stakeholders from the sector, the European Commission, and society at large. CSEI is directly supported by the European Commission (DG Energy) and will qualify the discussions at the Commission’s annual Copenhagen Energy Infrastructure Forum. CSEI will analyze the consequences of digitalization of the energy sector and its impact on energy infrastructure, investigate efficient regional decision-making procedures, explore ways to promote public acceptance of energy infrastructure projects, and examine the financial challenges to energy infrastructure projects.

"The work by the CSEI has helped to identify cross-sectoral linkages that impact the way we design, plan, and implement cross-border infrastructure in Europe to the benefit of society overall and will help guide our search for sustainable ways to radically overhaul European infrastructure in a socially just and fair way, while strengthening our competitiveness and the EU’s position as leader in the global fight against climate change."

Kadri Simson, Commissioner for Energy, European Commission (2022)
