JGSEE would like to introduce adjunct professor; Dr. Wilhelmina Maria Catharina Beerepoot (Milou Beerepoot). Dr. Beerepoot received her PhD degree in innovation systems in relation to encouraging a transition towards a low-carbon building sector from Delft University of Technology (NL).
Dr. Beerepoot is also a strategy manager on energy efficiency at GIZ/CIM and a senior renewable energy analyst at the International Energy Agency. Prior to that, for over 10 years, she occupied various positions in different organizations working in areas related to market data, energy efficiency and policies in renewable energy. She notably occupied positions as assistant professor/ senior researcher at Delft University of Technology, visiting research fellow at the School of Architecture, University of Liverpool (UK), owner/consultant at WMCB Consultancy, and consultant at Damen Consultants as well as W/E Consultants Sustainable Building. Her research interests are focused on analyses of market data and policies in renewable energy for heating and cooling.
Dr.Beerepoot, pior to her currentย position at GIZ, was the CIM expert at JGSEE. Under that capacity, as the PI, she has led JGSEE in collaboration with University College London (UCL) to secure research project focus on ASEAN energy efficiency activity under the title ‘ Effective energy efficiency policy implementation targeting : New Modern Energy Consumers in the Greater Mekong Sub-region’. This three years project is supported by United Kingdom Research Council )UKRC) and accommodate five ASEAN countries including Cambodia, Laos PDR, Myanmar, Thailandย and Vietnam.
Dr. Beerepoot help strengthening the school‘s capacity in providing education and training, R&D and technical services, particularly through linkages with German and international institutions. Part of this will be performed through a GIZ project on “National Energy Efficiency Plan as Core Element of an Action and MRV-based Emission Reduction Strategy, Thailand”. JGSEE has also been commissioned by EPPO for this project to develop a National Energy Efficiency Plan.
