Integrated Energy Systems and Macroeconomy feedbacks, Energy Systems Modelling, Energy Security, Climate Change Mitigation, Global Integrated Assessment Modelling, Environmental & Ecological economics.

Biography 

James' research interests focus on the feedbacks between the energy system and economy, and researches these dynamics through integrated energy systems models such as Irish TIMES (Irish) and TIAM (Global), applied to the development of national energy security indices and integrated assessment of climate mitigation. James holds PhD in Energy Engineering (UCC), an M.Sc. in Energy Systems and the Environment (Strathclyde), an M.A. in Economic and Environmental Modelling (NUIG), and a B.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering (NUIG). James has published in energy systems modelling and macroeconomic feedback, with applications to energy security and equity at national and global scales. He has been an invited as government panellist and advisor on energy security and energy poverty strategies for the most recent Irish Energy White Paper. He contributed to the technical modelling for the Irish Low Carbon road map. James has also published as part of Insight-E, an Academic-Industry think-tank advising the European Commission on energy security. Most recently using hybrid models, James is modelling equitable decarbonisation of the global energy system, to quantify the levels of investment from developed to developing countries to fairly mitigate and stay below the 2C Climate Change average warming limit. He  presented as lead author, and co-organiser of the first Irish University UNFCCC side event, at COP21. Most recently he was a member of the Scientific Review Committee and local organising committee for the Inernational Energy Workshop (2016). He also reviews for Energy Economics.
