The working group formally consists of three
subdivisions: Energy, Transport and Environment. The general aim of ETE
is to apply state of the art economic theory to current policy issues at
the national and European level. An important asset of ETE is its
extensive portfolio of numerical partial and general equilibrium models
for the assessment of transport, energy and environmental policies.
ETE is a part of the
Centrum voor Economische StudiŽn (C.E.S.) which is the research
division of the Department of Economics of the
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K.U.Leuven). It is also one of the
founders of the spin-off transport consultancy
Transport & Mobility Leuven and of the
Energy Institute (E.I.).
