From May 2010 to December 2011 research assistant at the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI, since January 2012 in the Competence Center Energy Policy and Energy Markets. Coordination and participation in numerous international research projects, such as “Combined Renewable Energy Masterplan CREMP for Egypt”, “Desert Power 2050 – Perspectives on a Sustainable Power System for EUMENA”, “Local Manufacturing Assessment for CSP Projects in MENA”, “Development of regional and Pan-European guidelines for more efficient integration of renewable energy into future infrastructure – SUSPLAN”.

Work focus

Promotion strategies for renewable energies. Potential of renewable energies and sustainable development in developing and transition countries. Evaluation of regulatory framework conditions and RES support schemes in the context of trans-regional electricity market integration. Assessment of manufacturing capabilities and future potential for local production of renewable energy technology components, with focus on the MENA region. Evaluation of industrial policies for renewable energy technology industries and development of instruments and strategies to enhance the local value creation from renewable energy deployment in developing and transition countries.
