Manager & Head of Gas Markets

Dr. Simon Schulte has been working at the Institute of Energy Economics (EWI) at the University of Cologne since 2015, first as a Research Associate and since 2019 as Manager and Head of Gas Markets. His responsibilities include the acquisition, operation and execution of projects for industrial clients as well as the public sector. In applied research and consulting projects he has examined the European and global gas markets as well as topics like hydrogen and sector coupling. In consulting projects for clients from the industry and public sectors, he has analyzed, e.g., options for gas supply diversification for the European Union and Germany or the contribution of gas storages to the security of gas supply. He has advised, among others, the German Federal Foreign Office, the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the European Commission. During his time at EWI, he completed an exchange as a consultant at the International Energy Agency (IEA), where he worked two years in a row for several months in the “Energy Market and Security” Directorate in the Division “Gas, Coal and Power Markets”. His research focus lies on the modelling of gas markets and the security of gas supply. Before joining EWI, Simon Schulte studied Industrial Engineering with a major in chemical/energy engineering at the Münster University of Applied Sciences (Germany), the University of California (Los Angeles, USA), the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH Bergen, Norway) and the TU Dresden (Germany).
