Starting over two years ago we have published studies on coal repowering in Poland and China.
We are now expanding our area of focus to include India, Indonesia and South Korea.
Since starting, we’ve worked with technology vendors, research institutes, NGOs, universities and other organisations actively working on the decarbonisation of coal plants.
Repower Initiative was established in 2016 and employ a team of experts based throughout Europe and around the world.
Staffan is a Swedish engineer and consultant to clean energy projects around the world. He is the coauthor of the book, A Bright Future: How Some Countries Have Solved Climate Change and the Rest Can Follow (PublicAffairs Books, January 2019).
Dr. Joseph McKenna is a Senior Developer and a machine learning expert. He has a background in antimatter research, data acquisition, systems management, and the application of machine learning to data.
Daniel is responsible for data pipelines, capacity expansion modelling, and coupling of the tools within the QCL modelling framework.
Sebastian has a background in nuclear reactor development and solar cell material research. He is currently responsible for energy modelling and PtX projects for industrial clients.
Baroness Bryony is a life peer in the UK House of Lords and a life-long environmental campaigner. She was the lead author on the 2008 Climate Change Act, a landmark piece of legislation which legally requires the UK to reduce its emissions to a level 80% lower than its emissions in 1990.
Albert is an entrepeneur with a Masters degree in Materials Science and Renewable Energy Engineering. He is also the CEO and co-founder of the start-up Urban Oasis, a company which designs, engineers and builds indoor farms around the world.
