Heidi Ursula Heinrichs heads the “Energy Potentials and Supply Pathways” group at the IEK-3. She holds a Ph.D. in engineering from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University. Her research and teaching activities focus on energy scenarios, modeling the energy system transformation, and the integration of social, economic, and technical dimensions in energy system analysis, with a recent special focus on the global scale and green hydrogen. She has worked in these areas at Jülich, the University of Cambridge and the KIT. She has led several energy system analysis projects and is currently leading the IEK-3’s work on the H2ATLAS-Africa project.
