Georgia Savvidou joined SEI in January 2016. Her research focus is on energy transition on a national scale.
She is part of the interdisciplinary project PATHWAYS which explores the possibilities for transitions to a low-carbon, sustainable Europe. This involves modelling of current heat systems and the development of scenarios representing different plausible, future trajectories.
Georgia has prior experience in energy systems analysis and development of alternative future pathways on several national energy systems in Europe including example Cyprus, the Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom. Her main research interests include the evolution of energy systems and the linkages between the three pillars of sustainability; environment, economy and society.
She holds a M.Sc. in Energy and Environmental Sciences from the University of Groningen, Netherlands. Her master’s thesis involves the development of a method that enables dynamic simulations of future and national electricity demands in different European energy systems. Prior to this, Georgia received a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Cyprus.
