Welcome to the website of the research group on Power Markets Analytics, Computer Science, and Optimization (PACO). PACO is within the Center for Energy Science and Technology at Skoltech.


PACO research activities are in the fields of control, operation, planning, and economics of modern power systems.  We are specialized in the application of advanced modeling, optimization techniques, statistical models to power systems problems. We believe in the power of knowledge and innovation as a transformation engine for society.  We aim to leverage this transformation process through a highly collaborative environment involving students, senior researchers, a network of external research collaborators, and industry agents.
