AGYA Alumni Jointly building bridges into the future
My current research focuses on energy transition, green growth, European affairs, and public sector management. My overall vision is to create living environments running on renewable energies and using energy resources as effectively as possible. In my position as full professor for energy economics at Nuertingen-Geislingen University, I analyze the governance and policy instruments which support this transformation of the energy systems on national, European and global scale.
Within the AGYA community, I enjoy contributing to projects related to the fields of energy policy design and strategy reviews, supporting energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
I believe the various countries represented in AGYA can mutually learn from each other’s experiences to design good practice solutions for policy instruments and transition strategies, especially in regard to the concepts of smart cities. Developing and evaluating these fields will provide a stimulating learning environment for both, researcher and students. It will also trigger international exchanges, which I would like to promote as well.
