Graeme Hawker, BA BSc MA MSc CSci MEI

Research Fellow

Personal Statement

With 10 years' experience from the wind industry, I am a researcher active in the field of Energy Systems analysis. My research focus is on the means by which the transition to a decarbonised energy system may be achieved taking into account all possible vectors (electricity, gas/hydrogen, heat) against an uncertain political, economic and technical background. In particular, I aim to identify the key short-term policies which may be necessary to facilitate the key technologies of the next few decades that may unlock the full potential of renewable energy in the long term, including the requirement to do so for the energy system considered as a whole.
