Robert Meyer M.Sc.

Project Manager, Building Systems Technology, Division Energy Technologies and Systems

Research Focus

  • Concepts for energy efficient buildings and the application of renewable energy in buildings
  • Evaluation of possible grid-support and flexibility potential that can be supplied from energy consumers and producers within buildings
  • Expertise about the regulatory framework on providing flexibility from buildings
  • Evaluation of opportunities and barriers to achieve the energy transition within the building sector (with a special focus on challenges through skills shortages and the roll of craftsmanship within the energy transition)
  • Gaining and disseminating knowledge over the whole national research field of energy efficiency in buildings

Curriculum vitae

Robert Meyer received the Bachelor Degree in Industrial Engineering at the Technical University Darmstadt in 2014. During a stay abroad in 2013 he gained international experience in Mexico. He graduated from university in 2017 with a Master’s Degree in Energy Science and Engineering (M.Sc.). During his studies he was employed as a working student at Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (2010-2012) and Clean Energy Sourcing GmbH (2015-2016), an operator of a virtual power plant. After writing his Master Thesis at Fraunhofer ISE he started his work as an full-time employee there in 2018 in the group "Building Systems Technology".
