Background and activities
I'm lecturing the course: POL1003 - The Politics of the Environment, Energy, and Resource Management.
H2020 project ECHOES - Energy CHOices supporting the Energy union and the Set-plan
Our energy system is changing. Renewable energy technologies are increasingly being integrated into the current energy mix. Thus, the energy transition no longer a question of if, but rather a question of how fast. The challenges from climate change, poor air quality in major cities and other related environmental degradation from our current energy sources makes the transition important for a range of reasons. A clean and sustainable energy system is the backbone of a society that takes these challenges seriously and wants to enable its citizens to live healthier and sustainable lives.
I, therefore, focus my research on the effects of climate policy choices and technological development on CO2 emissions in various sectors in society.
