Copenhagen School of Energy Infrastructure (CSEI)
CSEI is established as a think tank in the form of a research center at CBS' Department of Economics and will deliver 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 Commision’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.
“To prepare our energy system for the low-carbon future, our infrastructure needs radical overhaul and expansion. The Copenhagen School of Energy Infra- structure can help bridge the gap between the status quo and our vision for the future by providing much needed quality research."
(Miguel Arias Cañete, European Commissioner for Climate Action & Energy)
