Hannes Gaschnig is a research associate in the Energy Transition Dynamics group at IASS. As part of the EU project "Sustainable Energy Transition Laboratory" - SENTINEL, he supports the development of an open model platform for the European energy transition. He analyzes the factors for the successful use of computer models in policy advice, identifies the current needs of stakeholders regarding the future energy system, and works on the integration of social factors in energy models.
Prior, Hannes coordinated the work package "Multi-Criterial Assessment" (AP11) in the Kopernikus project "Energy Transition Navigation System" - ENavi at the IASS. He accompanied the process of scientific and participatory development, discussion, and application of a multi-dimensional assessment approach for policy measures in the energy sector.
Before joining IASS, he was a research associate at the Konstanz' Institute of Strategic Innovation and Technology Management, where he modeled and analyzed hybrid and sector-coupled energy supply on municipal level for the working group on energy economics. Hannes studied environmental sciences at the University of Koblenz-Landau with an emphasis on socio-economics and environmental management as well as energy technology and environmental engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Kempten. During his studies, he had been working for the Institute for Ecological Business Management and at the Research Center for Energy Economics in the fields of energy system analysis and climate accounting.
