Curriculum Vitae

Since October 2012 Dr. Dominik Schäuble works as a Project Scientist with the Transdisciplinary Panel on Energy Change (TPEC) at IASS Potsdam. He studied Geosciences and made his PhD in Atmospheric Physics. Within TPEC his focus is on policies and market regulations affecting the future role of renewable and conventional power generation in Germany. He analyses emission reduction policies, developments in the field of fossil fuel resources and electricity market reform options in the context of the German Energiewende. Further, Dominik was the scientific coordinator of the Global Sustainability Summer School 2013 in Potsdam, jointly organized by IASS and PIK.
