Ph. D. Tobias Fleiter

Fraunhofer Institute for
Systems and Innovation Research ISI

Coordinator of Business Unit Demand Analyses and Projections

Experience

Tobias Fleiter began work at the Fraunhofer ISI in the Competence Center Energy Technology and Energy Systems in 2007 and coordinates the business unit for energy demand analysis and forecasts since 2013. He studied industrial engineering with a focus on "Energy and Environmental Management" at the University of Flensburg and obtained his PhD in 2012 at Utrecht University on the topic “The adoption of energy-efficient technologies by firms”.

Work focus

  • Modelling energy systems,
  • scenarios of energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions,
  • impact of energy policy and climate policy instruments,
  • energy transition in industry.
