Apr 2018: Automation mechanisms for market models: Case study to reduce discrimination in energy trading

Cultural discrimination creates an unfair market for the poor and lower caste producers. This thesis was aimed at modeling such markets through agent based modeling, and introduce different automation mechanisms, namely local mediation, and bid splitting to prevent the effects of discrimination in energy trading.

Aug 2017: Institutional Innovation: Case study of sustenance of solar electrification projects in Rural India,

Given the dynamics of rural communities of India, how can socio-technical systems of solar electrification be sustained? This project develops an institutional innovation framework that helps answer this question. The framework is conceptualized and operationalized to understand that how the institutions around these factors can be changed by the community and individual actions in such socio-technical innovations and infrastructure systems.

Jan 2017 - Apr 2018: Computational analysis of social effects in energy trading in rural India

The project involves modeling and empirical analysis of the solar energy trading projects in rural context of developing countries. The aim is to understand the social (economical and institutional) dynamics involved by providing:

  • Policy recommendations with empirical research on the various energy trading projects at micro/nano grid level and development of theoretical framework to incorporate the social factors. 

  • Computer Science (agent based) model to understand the effects via agent based modelling and minimize the effects among of societal norms for energy trading.
