Experience

Barbara Schlomann studied economics and energy economics at the universities of Freiburg i.Br. and Cologne. In 1987, she joined the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (Fraunhofer ISI) in Karlsruhe, Germany, where she works as a senior scientist and project manager. From 2008 to 2011, head of business unit Energy Efficiency in the Competence Center Energy Policy and Energy Systems, since 2012 head of business unit Energy Policy in the Competence Center Energy Policy and Energy Markets. In 2014, she received her PhD at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. Her current research focus and publications are mainly in the area of national and international energy policy. They comprise the design and evaluation of energy policies, the top-down and bottom-up monitoring of energy efficiency targets and strategies, energy efficiency indicators and the ex-post and ex-ante analysis of energy consumption in all final consumption sectors. From 1990 to 1998, she also gave lectures in economics. Since 2011, she is a member in the Board of the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (eceee).
