EWI's activities are education; research and consultancy; organization of conference; and publication. EWI's research and consultancy covers the following areas: (1) sector-specific energy industry studies; (2) energy pricing; (3) institutional and regulatory issues; (4) integration of energy markets in the EU; (5) energy and environmental interaction; and (6) modeling of the electricity and gas markets. In addition, EWI offers an optional course in energy economics in Cologne University's Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences. The course can be chosen among the graduate programs in business administration and economics. Each year, some 50 graduate students choose this option, and about 15 students prepare their final thesis in the field of energy economics. The institute also supervises about 15 doctoral students. For almost 50 years, EWI has been organizing the annual International Cologne Energy Conference (Internationale Arbeitstagung).
