The DTU CEE Summer School 2016 “Uncertainty in Electricity Markets and System Operation” was organized by the ELMA group from July 4 to July 8, 2016, and sponsored by EES-UETP (Electric Energy Systems – University Enterprise Training Partnership) and the CITIES project.

With 48 participants (from universities and enterprises, and from all over the world) and 10 world-renowned lecturers, this event was one of the largest summer school courses in EES-UETP history. The summer school focused on advanced optimization techniques, e.g., stochastic, interval and robust optimization, and their applications to energy systems. Students received tutorials on the application and interpretation of these techniques, and used their skills to complete group projects. Finally, students were asked to disseminate their findings to other students through presentations and peer review. The overall evaluation from 48 participants was as follows: excellent: 53.2%, good: 42.5%, fair: 4.3%, poor: 0%.
