SITE will host a half-day conference on oil prices and economic impacts of oil price volatility
The 9th Energy Day conference “Economic Impacts of Oil Price Fluctuations” will take place at Torsten Lecture Room, Stockholm School of Economics on November 5, 2015.
This year's SITE Energy Day will be devoted to discussing the consequences of oil price fluctuations for markets and actors of the economy. The half-day conference will engage policy-oriented scholars and experts from the business community to discuss the impact of oil price fluctuations on macro fundamentals, international trade, strategies of oil cartels, strategic risk management, and opportunities for change in energy systems.
The conference will consist of two sessions devoted to the two conference themes: the macroeconomic impacts of oil price volatility, and the impact of oil price on firms' strategic behaviour.
In the first conference section Torbjörn Becker, Director of SITE, will give a talk "The volatility of oil price forecasts and its macroeconomic implications", Natalya Volchkova, Policy Director of CEFIR, will discuss a topic "Oil price fluctuations and international trade", and Luca De Lorenzo, Senior Researcher at Stockholm Environment Institute, will give a presentation "Low oil prices and the new climate economy: constraint or opportunity?".
In the second conference section Matteo Manera, Professor at the University of Milano-Bicocca and Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, will give a talk "Asymmetries in the oil-gasoline price relationship", Hubert Roslund, Senior Strategic Risk Manager at Nordea, will give a presentation "The impact of oil price volatility on Risk and Portfolio Management", and Catarina Marvão, Researcher at SITE-SSE and Trinity College Dublin, will give a presentation "Fuelish” Firms or Clever Retailers? Multimarket contact, collusion and mergers".
We are looking forward to a lively discussion and invite you to register for the event until Friday, October 30, 2015 using the Eventbrite registration form below.
