"For me, the energy system transition stands for a great opportunity for sustainable living together."
Alexandra Krumm is working on the social aspects of the energy system transition, including the design of a socially just energy system transition, the roles of different actors in the transformation process, and public participation. She uses social science methods and combines them with quantitative energy models.
Her work is supervised by Prof. Dr. Pao-Yu Oei from the Department of Energy and Environmental Management at Europa-Universität Flensburg (EUF).
In her Master's programme in industrial engineering with a focus on energy and resource management at TU Berlin, she addressed both technical and economic aspects of the energy transition in Germany and internationally. As part of her studies, Alexandra spent two semesters abroad in Istanbul (Turkey) and Chennai (India) and was a student assistant for various organisations including dena, giz and RLI.
