Lena Neij

Lena Neij's research focuses on the dynamics of energy systems and the analysis of governance and policies for sustainable development. The core issue has been development and assessment of methods for analyzing the dynamics of energy systems in view of technical change, i.e. development, introduction, and diffusion of new technology, and policy measures for effecting and accelerating technical change. The research, which has been system based and interdisciplinary, has covered energy for sustainable development in general, with a focus on renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency in buildings.
