About the Researcher 

This research is carried out by Jamie Behrendt (LL.M), a PhD researcher at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. Within her PhD, she empirically assesses how micro electricity grids should be regulated in the EU in a way that maximises legal certainty in the electricity sector to make an effective and efficient contribution to the energy transition. PhD supervisors are Edwin Woerdman (Professor of Markets and Regulation) and Hans Vedder (Professor of Economic Law). Her daily supervisor is Lea Diestelmeier (Assistant Professor of Energy Law).

Prior to the start of this PhD, Jamie Behrendt completed her LLM in Energy and Climate Law as well as the LLM Research Master at the University of Groningen. During her Masters, she was involved as a research assistant at the Energy Law Section, and as a teaching assistant at the European Law Section. Her responsibilities included teaching working groups, which covered various courses, such as Introduction to European Law, European Law, Judicial Protection, Europees Recht, and Decision-making in the European Union. For more information, please visit: https://www.rug.nl/staff/j.behrendt/
