In memoriam
studied mathematics and energy economics in Vienna
 leader of Environmentally Compatible Energy Systems, IIASA
 long experience with energy scenarios and models
 co-director of International Energy Workshop (IEW)
 leading author in IPCC second report
 many publications, two of which have been classified among
the top ten ‘most influential papers’ in energy economics
 taught in Graz, Vienna, Beijing – had just started a PhD course

Energy and climate strategic platform
KTH’s research, education and interaction with industry and society in the field of
energy shall contribute with solutions towards sustainable energy systems to meet
climate and socio-economic challenges in the world. This will be accomplished by
working in the whole spectrum of basic research, product development, systems
innovation, and market implementation in national and international collaboration .

How to develop, integrate
or improve energy systems?
We address constraints and opportunities on the way to sustainability
 planning and patterns of energy generation and use
 resource competition and management
 development needs and preferences
 infrastructure and technology systems options
 policies and incentives to change and innovate
 financial sources and investment opportunities
 institutional challenges

How to develop and build
sustainable energy systems globally?
We search systems solutions that:
 satisfy criteria of efficiency, reliability and sustainability
 are in line with markets and technology options
 respond to climate change and development agendas
 explore international co-operation, fully incorporating developing countries
