About the division of Energy Systems
Welcome to the division of Energy Systems.
Our research is based on a broad system perspective, where energy technology, innovation, and policy are linked to sustainable development. We develop quantitative models for optimizing energy systems and develop the basis for strategic decisions on investments, as well as policy. We carry out qualitative analyses regarding the impact of policies on the transition to a sustainable society. Also, synergies and trade-offs between the many targets of the 2030 Agenda’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals are carefully analyzed. Our perspective is global, and we collaborate with many countries and world organizations, some of which are IEA, UNDESA, UNESCAP, FAO, World Bank and SIDA.
