This PhD will explore Norway’s role in an integrated, weather- resilient and highly renewable European energy system in 2050. To do so, the PhD candidate will use and develop energy system models using mathematical programming tools such as GAMS. Such models require large amounts of data which will be processed and analysed in R and/or Python (e.g. meteorological data to drive renewable generation). The student will be encouraged to present findings at academic conferences and publish in scientific journals. The specific focus of the PhD will be agreed on with the supervisors depending on the experience and research interest of the PhD candidate.
