H. (Esther) Park Lee


Esther Park Lee is a PhD candidate at the Energy & Industry section. She obtained her BSc in Chemical Engineering from IQS-Universitat Ramon Llull and her MSc in Industrial Ecology from TU Delft and Leiden University. She is pursuing a PhD on the topic “Exploring the emergence of the Car as Power Plant”


Esther is studying the development of smart and integrated energy systems that use fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) as power plants. She uses a complex socio-technical systems modeling approach to understand the interactions between actors as well as the organizational arrangements and institutions that can be aligned with the technical design choices in such systems. Currently she is focusing on residential microgrid applications of the Car as Power Plant concept.
