Kasper Emil Thorvaldsen

Research Scientist

An outgoing positive researcher that likes to talk about many things, and interests in many different hobbies.


Msc. Energi og Miljø atNTNU: 2013-2018
Specialization within technical-economal analysis of the energy system, wrote masters thesis on battery storage for multi-market operation
Doctoral degree NTNU IEL: 2018-2022
Wrote a PhD on long-term operational planning of energy system in buildings. The work looked at long-term price signals for buildings, and how to represent them for short-term operational models, for better use of flexibility resources.

Competence and research areas

As a researcher, I specialize within programming and optimization of the energy system, to look at the future solutions for utilizing flexibility resources.
My specializations (personal opinion):
- Programming in Python
- Optimization techniques
- Analytical methods for pricing flexibility
- Long-term operational planning of the energy system
- Stochastic Dynamic Programming
