Jean-Michel Glachant’s research focuses on building a common European energy and climate policy. He’s interested in the European decarbonisation process – and related industrial organisation, business models and investment strategies within the energy sector.

Since 2008, Jean-Michel has been the director of the Florence School of Regulation as well as Professor of European Energy Policy at the Loyola de Palacio Chair. He was previously a professor at La Sorbonne.

He has advised the European Commission and the French Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) and has been a coordinator or scientific advisor for several European research projects. He’s a research partner at the Centre for Energy and Environmental Policy Research (CEEPR) at MIT and the Energy Policy Research Group (EPRG) at Cambridge University. And he recently wrote the Handbook on Electricity Markets with Paul Joskow and Michael Pollitt.
