BIEE Energy Seminar  # 3

Deep decarbonisation scenarios for the UK power sector  

Running the power system entirely on renewables is an enticing prospect for meeting decarbonisation targets. Several countries and states are now moving towards 100% renewable targets and National Grid recently announced it was preparing for a fully renewable system. But how realistic are these targets and what challenges need to be overcome? How would an “all of the above” approach to power sector decarbonisation compare? Niall Mac Dowell from Imperial College is an expert in modelling low carbon power systems and will explore these issues in presenting some of his most recent work on deep decarbonisation scenarios for the UK.

Speaker:

Dr. Ing Piera Patrizio, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA)

Piera Patrizio

Dr. Patrizio completed her Ph.D. at the Energetic Engineering department of the University of Udine in 2016. During her Ph.D. she began collaborating with the International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg (Austria), to develop a geo-located renewable energy systems platform for Indonesia, under the Tropical Future Initiative (TFI) project. In 2016, Dr. Patrizio was appointed as a Research Scholar at the Ecosystems Service and Management (ESM) program at IIASA, where she is currently based. Since 2017, she is collaborating with the Center For Environmental Policy (CEP) at the Imperial College, under the NERC-GGR project framework. Her research experience includes the quantitative analysis of the employment effects of emissions mitigation, the integration of negative emission technologies in existing regional energy systems, and the implications of policy choices on energy systems deployment. Her current work focuses on connecting insights from energy modeling with social science and climate policy and includes the assessment of socio-economic benefits of energy systems decarbonization and the exploration of approaches that can foster the integration of knowledge across disciplines.
