Postdoctoral Fellow in Modelling biodiversity impacts of energy systems in Norway

The Department of Energy and Process Engineering has a vacancy for a Postdoc for a project funded by the RCN and in close collaboration with NINA (Norwegian Institute for Nature Research).

Norway is committed to contribute to reaching the aims of the international community regarding e.g. the UN Sustainable Development goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. Reaching as many SDGs as possible means that we ned to have an understanding between which goals potential conflicts might exist, and how various SDGs can be balanced. Maximizing renewable electricity production may come at a certain cost for terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems. Right now, we do not have models that allow us to identify these trade-offs.

It is therefore our aim to develop approaches that can quantify the ecological impacts of renewable energy systems with a life cycle perspective and a systems-wide approach. The main objective of the project is to assess overall biodiversity impacts of the Norwegian electricity production and distribution system using a holistic life-cycle perspective, for both the current electricity system and future production scenarios.
