Valeria Jana Schwanitz

Arbeids- og kompetanseområde

Personal background: I am an energy economist with experience in first-principle models, energy system modeling, and empirical analysis of coupled human-nature systems in the context of climate change and sustainable development. I am a member of the board of the  Joint Program "e3s - Economic, Environmental and Social Impacts of the Energy Transition" of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) and I also lead the sub-program on 'Data science and artificial intellegence" of the newly established EERA Joint Proggram 'Digitalization of energy'. I am furthermore the leader of the "Green Innovation Pillar" of the HVL PhD program RESINNREG. Finally, I am proud to be a Distinguished Fellow at the Schumacher Institute for Sustainable Systems, Bristol, UK. For peer-reviewed publications, visit research gate or browse the list below.
