About me

Hej and welcome!

My aim here is to inform about what is going on with my research, also giving some more general information and links on research areas I am interested in. While this website is mainly intended for academics and professionals, I am doing my best so that people with general interest in electricity markets, renewable energy, meteorology, mathematical modelling, statistics and forecasting, may be able to find some relevant information.

Who am I?

image … A researcher and academic, Professor at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Department of Electrical Engineering, more precisely in its Centre for Electric Power and Energy. There I head the Energy Analytics & Markets group. Besides this main position, I have been a visiting researcher at the University of Oxford (Mathematical Institute) and at the University of Washington (Dept. of Statistics), also spending one year at the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), as a consultant mainly focusing on ensemble forecasting of surface winds. I have also been a visiting Professor at Ecole Normale Superieure in Rennes. In 2019, I will be a Simons fellow at the Isaac Newton Institute of the University of Cambridge in connection with Mathematics of Energy Systems thematic semester.

Today, I act as an editor for the International Journal of Forecasting, also being part of the editorial board of Energy Science & Engineering. Formerly I was also acting as editor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems and Wind Energy.

What I have been most interested in over the last decade is the forecasting of wind power generation, at time scales from a few minutes to a few days ahead (and maybe further than that…). Forecasting of wind power generation is a cross-disciplinary problem, which requires expertise in meteorology, statistics, power systems engineering, and decision sciences. Today, I focus on a broader research portfolio, with the main objective of supporting the integration of renewable energy generation in power systems, by considering electricity markets as a key element. In that vain, I am coordinating a research project called ‘The Energy Collective’ (the-energy-collective-project.com), where with a group of others we work on designing consumer-centric electricity markets, in their peer-to-peer and community-based forms. The work ranges for the mathematics and mechanism design to actual deployment and demonstration through consideration of regulatory and tech aspects. The actual test case is in Svalin, a community housing project in Trekroner, Roskilde, Denmark. See the presentation video of the community:

I have general interest in applied mathematics, energy meteorology, forecasting theory, game theory, behavioral economics, etc. In case you are interested, you may find here my cv in pdf format… click here
