Taco Niet, P.Eng., Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Professional Practice, School of Sustainable Energy Engineering

Taco’s research deals with energy systems modelling, energy storage technologies, integration of renewable/variable technologies and climate change mitigation and adaptation. Dr. Niet focuses on addressing systemic challenges in the energy system including integration of variable renewables and working with emerging economies. Recent modelling work has addressed the nexus of climate, land, energy and water interactions in a combined modelling framework. He has taught a wide range of courses, including those on instrumentation, systems design and modelling, control systems, strength of materials, and technology and society. He supervises graduate students in research areas related to systems modelling, focusing on building tools that help society and policy makers effectively address climate and other system impacts and trade-offs in hisΔE+ Research Group (link).
