Dr. F. (Francesco) Lombardi
Francesco Lombardi is a postdoctoral researcher working on computational methods to support the practical realisation of EU-wide fast and deep decarbonisation. He holds a PhD in Energy Engineering from Politecnico di Milano and has been a visiting researcher at ETH Zurich and KU Leuven.
His research focuses on developing computational methods to better support the identification of practically viable, technically reliable and socially acceptable infrastructure deployment strategies for a fully decarbonised energy system. An example is the original SPORES algorithm, now implemented in the open-source energy modelling framework Calliope.
He additionally works on the smart integration of electric vehicles and heat in the power system, and on the effects of weather and climate uncertainty on energy system planning.
