Curriculum vitae

Konstantin Löffler is a post-doctoral researcher at the Workgroup for Infrastructure Policy at TU Berlin, and a guest researcher at EUF, working in the field of energy system modeling and energy economics. Before that, he wrote his Dissertation titled "Quantifying effects of the global low-carbon transition - model-based analyses of upcoming challenges and opportunities" at TU Berlin, which he successfully defended in June of 2021. As one of the original developers of the open-source energy system model GENeSYS-MOD, he was and is part of numerous projects (including openENTRANCE and open MODEX) and teaches in the areas of energy system modeling and operations research.

He did both his Bachelor and his Master in Industrial and Network Economics at TU Berlin, with a focus on energy and environmental economics, as well as operations research. Dr. Löffler just finished a 6-month research stay at SINTEF Energy Research in Trondheim, Norway.
