Alessandro

Research Interests:

Energy Systems Modelling, Energy and Climate Policy, Emissions Mitigation, Agriculture GHG emissions, Renewable Resource Potentials, Power Generation, Land Usage.

Biography:

Alessandro is currently a post-doctoral researcher within the Energy Policy and Modelling Group, under the direction of Dr. Brian Ó Gallachóir, focusing on activities of Irish TIMES Phase 3 project. His research had contributed to the calibration of the Irish TIMES energy system model and the creation of a range of policy scenarios. His research has also focused on the development of methodologies to soft-link a TIMES energy systems model to a dedicated power systems model (PLEXOS) and to integrate agricultural systems modelling and energy systems modelling.

He is currently working on developing new climate scenarios which assess implications of a number of policy targets for the year 2030 and on quantifying the land-use implications of climate mitigation.
