Introduction




Upcoming: Posts, news and writings about energy, energy consumption and saving can be found on the new Energy Blog. I will start this new blog in August 2020 with a special focus on the user side and energy demand issues.

Initially this website was created to disseminate information on my doctoral research project. Blog Archive contains posts, news 2017-2019 (my doctoral research project e.g. about India).
