Dynamic Decision-making of a Steel Producer under Emission Control

Project leader: RNDr. Martin Šmíd, Ph.D.

Supported by (ID): GA16-01298S

Type of project: theoretical
Duration: 2016 - 2018

The aim of this project is to model optimal dynamic behaviour of a risk-averse European carbon-emitting steel producer, to design and implement an algorithm solving the corresponding multi-stage optimisation problem and apply the model to a real-life steel company. A linear combination of mean profit and conditional value at risk will serve as a decision criterion; decision variables will include production plans and amounts of allowances held. In addition to the solution and implementation of the model, stability with respect to crisis scenarios will be studied.
