"For me, the energy system transition stands for Working on all sites at once."
What is the quickest way of decarbonising passenger transport? That is the question Marlin Arnz is investigating in long-term scenarios, using transport and energy modelling. He focuses on measures of avoiding unnecessary traffic and shifting traffic to more energy-efficient modes – strategies that are deemed crucial but have not been sufficiently investigated to date.
He is supervised by Prof. C. von Hirschhausen at the Workgroup for Infrastructure Policy at TU Berlin.
While studying for his degree in Industrial Engineering and Management, Marlin Arnz looked at the energy system transition from a modelling point of view as well as working in data analysis as a student assistant. He completed his Master's thesis on an innovative high-speed rail freight transport concept at the German Aerospace Centre.
