Research Fellow for Next Wave of Energy Systems in a Whole Systems Context
Elsa Barazza is a Research Analyst at the UCL Energy Institute. She is an energy economist and completed her PhD at the UCL Energy Institute in December 2018. Her research interest is on energy system modelling and energy policy. In particular, her work focuses on agent-based modelling of the energy sector, and her research investigates questions related to energy investments, non-optimal decision making, governance and finance. Elsa is the original developer of the BRAIN-Energy agent-based model.
For EnergyREV, Elsa is currently contributing to the expansion of BRAIN-Energy, to study the roles and investment decisions of different market players (e.g. national/local governments, national/local investors and households) in scaling-up SLES and to analyse the impacts of SLES on the energy system.
