Dr Fionn Rogan Research Fellow +353 (0)21 420 5282


Research Interests

Climate technology; technology evaluation; innovation systems; energy systems modelling; energy policy; ex-post analysis of energy policies 


Fionn has been a researcher with the Energy Policy and Modelling Group in UCC for over seven years. He is interested in a wide range of techical, policy and business aspects of the ongoing transition to a low carbon energy system. He has worked on projects such as energy systems pathways to decarbonise Ireland's energy system, the impact of energy efficiency policies, and the role of innovation in climate technology diffusion. Fionn has a PhD in Energy Systems Modelling, an MEngSc in Sustainable Energy, and a BEng in Industrial Engineering and Information Systems. He is a senior researcher on a new project co-funded by the NTR Foundation and SFI which is called Opportunities for Ireland in a Low Carbon Economy - Our 2050.
