Christian Breyer is a Professor for Solar Economy at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT), Finland. He will give a talk about his current research. His major expertise is in the integrated research of technological and economic characteristics of renewable energy systems, specialising in energy system modelling for 100% renewable energy on a local but also global scale.

His team published the most studies on 100% renewable energy for countries or major regions globally. Publications on integrated sector analyses with power, heat, transport, desalination, industry and negative CO2 emission options gain ground in his team.

He has previously worked for Reiner Lemoine Institut, Berlin, and Q-Cells (now: Hanwha Q Cells). He is a member of ETIP PV, IEA-PVPS, scientific committee of the EU PVSEC and IRES, chairman for renewable energy at the Energy Watch Group and reviewer for the IPCC.
