The center's research and teaching activities are in applied microeconomics. Professor Filippini works in empirical models applied to regulation and production economics as well as consumer choices and economic valuation of non-market goods.
Undergraduate and Masters Courses
Courses offered through CEPE are primarily intended to introduce ETH
students to energy economics. Professor Filippini teaches Principles of
Microeconomics during the fall semester. This is a core course for the MTEC Master program. He also teaches Empirical Methods in Energy Economics during the spring
semester which is offered as an elective course.
CEPE staff regularly teach courses in their areas of expertise.
Doctoral Courses and Seminars
At the PhD level, Professor Filippini organizes a block course in
Empirical Methods in Energy and Environmental Economics. This course is organized every other year in the Fall semester and features
lectures by Professor Anna Alberini
from the University of Maryland in valuation of environmental goods.
Professor Bill Greene from New York University teaches a short course in connection with CEPE, focusing on the application of discrete choice models and stochastic frontier analysis in health economics.
