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%.
