Prof. Felipe Feijoo is an associate professor at the school of Industrial Engineering, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (PUCV) and a visiting scholar at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, where he worked as a post-doctorate research associate and a principal developer of the H2RES model during the implementation of INTERENERGY project (2020-2021). He worked as a post-doctorate research associate at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’sJoint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI-PNNL) and at the Johns Hopkins University’sSystems Institute. While at JHU, he also had the opportunity to work at the MIT Collaborative Initiatives.
His research is broadly focused on the analysis of energy systems and their interaction with the climate-environment and other sub-systems. To do so, he developed (model and solve) a variety of mathematical models based on Mixed Complementarity Problems (MCP), Bi-level optimization models and statistical models. Other research interests include health-economics and predicting-forecast modeling using machine learning techniques (data analytics). He has also worked and led several projects at the Tampa Electric Company (TECO), Florida. He is cited 336 times on Scopus and has an h-index of 12.
Mr. Antun Pfeifer is an expert in energy planning and modelling of energy systems with main scientific contributions focused on the modelling of energy systems in transition from fossil fuel-based ones towards zero-emissions energy systems based on renewable energy. His main field of interest includes energy planning, modelling of energy systems, integration of variable renewable energy sources, use of demand response and storage technologies and energy markets. He develops new solutions for modelling of energy systems with comprehensive approach, using simulation approach, optimization approach, market integration and mathematical approaches as the game theory for multiple interconnected energy systems planning on a coupled day-ahead power market. He participated in the implementation of 12 international scientific projects funded by Horizon 2020, Interreg, IPA, EUKI and other funding bodies. Mr. Pfeifer is an author of 13 scientific journal publications indexed on Scopus. He has an h-factor of 8, with 192 citations.
Luka Herc is an expert on energy systems, energy economics and energy planning. Areas of expertise on modelling of energy systems with the use of EnergyPLAN, PLEXOS, H2RES and LEAP.
