The Effects of a Day Off from Retail Price Competition: Evidence on Consumer Behavior and Firm Performance in Gasoline Retailing
(Discussion paper;9/17, Working paper, 2017-07-06)
First, we analyze how regular days off from competition and a time-dependent price pattern affect firm performance. Second, we examine the effects on firms' profitability from consumers’ changing search- and timing behavior. ...
Credit supply shocks, financial constraints and investments for small and medium-sized firms
(Discussion paper;2012:11, Working paper, 2012-09)
In this paper, we find that reduced credit supply reduces firm investments in our sample of small private firms. The effect is strongest for the least financially constrained firms. We use a representative survey of ...
Bitcoin: En analyse av Bitcoins implikasjoner og hvordan norske skattemyndigheter utfordres

Bitcoin er en virtuell og desentralisert valuta som for første gang muliggjør betalinger direkte fra person til person, uten at betalingen må verifiseres av noen sentral, finansiell institusjon. Siden Bitcoin ble introdusert ...
Stochastic programs with binary distributions: Structural properties of scenario trees and algorithms
(Discussion paper;12/17, Working paper, 2017-10-27)
Binary random variables often refer to such as customers that are present or not, roads that are open or not, machines that are operable or not. At the same time, stochastic programs often apply to situations where penalties ...
Scrubber: a potentially overestimated compliance method for the Emission Control Areas - The importance of involving a ship's sailing pattern in the evaluation
(Discussion paper;13/17, Working paper, 2017-10-30)
Different methods for sulphur emission reductions, available to satisfy the latest Emission Control Areas (ECA) regulations, may lead to different sailing patterns (route and speed choices of a vessel) and thus have ...
Measuring Market Power in Gasoline Retailing: A Market- or Station Phenomenon?
(Discussion paper;4/18, Working paper, 2018-04-19)
Applying detailed consecutive daily micro data at the gasoline station level from Sweden we estimate a structural model to uncover the degree of competition in the gasoline retail market. We find that retailers do exercise ...
Windonomics : empirical essays on the economics of wind power in the Nordic electricity market

The impact of design uncertainty in engineer-to-order project planning
(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
A major driver of planning complexity in engineer-to-order (ETO) projects is design uncertainty far into the engineering and production processes. This leads to uncertainty in technical information and will typically lead ...
Scrapping a wind turbine: Policy changes, scrapping incentives and why wind turbines in good locations get scrapped first
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
The most common reason for scrapping a wind turbine in Denmark is to make room for a newer turbine. The decision to scrap a wind turbine is then highly dependent on an opportunity cost that comes from the interaction of ...
Dead Battery? Wind Power, the Spot Market, and Hydropower Interaction in the Nordic Electricity Market
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
It is well established within both the economics and power system engineering literature that hydropower can act as a complement to large amounts of intermittent energy. In particular hydropower can act as a “battery” where ...
