FUNSEAM manages the project of the Chair of Sustainable Energy of the UB; 'Economic Analysis of the impact of electicity sector regulation‘, by KIC InnoEnergy.
The project, supported by the IEB, will evaluate the economic effects of regulation in the electricity sector in its value chain. It is in charge of Knowledge & Innovation Community, KIC InnoEnergy, a company that depends on the international organism, The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
