Curriculum vitae

MSc Noha Saad Hussein works at the Fraunhofer ISE as a researcher in the Energy System Analysis group. The main focus of her studies is in the heating and cooling sector of different sectors with focus on the building sector. Currently the main fields of work are analyzing the effects of renewable energy integration and energy efficiency measures in the building sector on the energy system and the economic impact of certain measures. In the past she also worked a lot on renewable energy integration potential in developing countries and mainly in the MENA Region while assessing local value creation potential in addition to researching alternative energy solutions for different sectors.
