Andreas Goldthau, faculty member and Head of CEU's Department of Public Policy, published the Wiley Handbook of Global Energy Policy. It is the first handbook to provide a global policy perspective on energy, bringing together a diverse range of international energy issues in one volume. The Handbook
The research agenda will be developed to match the candidate’s interests and capacities and to advance policy-relevant knowledge on present and future national and global energy security challenges including under sustainable energy transitions. It will built on the recently completed Global Energy Assessment, where Professor Cherp led the analysis of energy security. Of particular interests might be such topics as energy security assessments and policies, and the relationship between global energy scenarios and national energy realities. These issues may be studied with respect to entire energy systems or particular energy sectors.
DPP faculty member Andreas Goldthau published an article on globalizing gas markets in Forbes Magazine. The piece, co-authored with Matthew Hulbert of European Energy Review, titles 'Why American Natural Gas Can Make Or Break A New Gas World' and features on Forbes' energy column.

Jessica Jewell, MESPOM Alumnus and CEU PhD student, helped the International Energy Agency (IEA) develop a novel MOdel of Short-term Energy Security (MOSES). MOSES is different from most of the existing energy security studies; it combines some 30 quantitative indicators in a transparent and policy-relevant way to describe different configurations of risk factors and resilience capacities.
The journal International Studies Perspectives published an article about global energy security by DPP faculty member Andreas Goldthau. The piece is titled A Public Policy Perspective on Global Energy Security. The article argues that the emerging literature on global energy governance has failed so far to provide an extensive intellectual rationale for the concept.
On 6 October 2011, DPP faculty member Andreas Goldthau participated in a one-day "Global Energy Strategy Simulation" in Istanbul, organized by the Turkish Industrialists and Businessmen’s Association (TÜSIAD) and run by the Texas-based global intelligence company Stratfor.
The event, which drew an audience of roughly 500 people, sought to simulate how major producers, consumers and transit countries would respond to fluctuations in oil prices in the future.
