cover the demand for and supply characteristics of energy and transportation systems.Examples include econometric models of
national, world-regional, and global travel demand, techno-economic assessments
of advanced surface and air vehicle technologies, and integrated modeling of
the global air transportation system.In
addition to peer review journals, his work was published in popular science
magazines, such as Scientific American and American Scientist.He is lead-author of “Transportation in a
Climate-Constrained World”, MIT Press (June 2009).
Andreas was principal
investigator of a number of funded research projects, including the UK Research
Council funded “Aviation Integrated Modelling” project (www.AIMproject.aero) and the EU FP7 funded
“Technology Opportunities and
Strategies Toward Climate-Friendly Transport” (www.TOSCAproject.org)
Prior to joining the
UCL Energy Institute, he held appointments at the International Institute for
Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), MIT, the University of Cambridge, and
Stanford University. Andreas holds a MSc in Aerospace Engineering and a
PhD in Energy Economics, both from the University of Stuttgart, Germany.
Andreas W. Schäfer’s research interests include energy and transportation systems analysis.
