... we face the question, if and how the economic system can reintegrate its impacts on the environment into its communication. In principle, this is possible through the instability of prices – but only through that. ... Niklas Luhmann

As Project Manager at BPIE, Judit designs and implements research related to modelling energy efficiency and CO2 scenarios in the buildings sector as part of integrated energy system analyses. She interprets the modelling results to draw conclusions for the design, implementation and transfer of policy instruments and bundles.

Judit has been modelling building stocks and policy impacts for 10 years with a focus on data analysis, building modelling and related policies. Judit  holds a PhD in civil engineering, degrees in economy & engineering and business administration. After researching energy demand in buildings at the Fraunhofer Institute for System and Innovation Research she joined BPIE in November 2016.

As Project Manager at BPIE, Judit designs and implements research related to modelling energy efficiency and CO2 scenarios in the buildings sector and as part of integrated energy system analyses. Profound knowledge of German and EU energy policies connected to efficiency and renewable energy and buildings enables helps her to assess the ambition and evaluate their impact. In the latest EU-project, she modelled all energy uses in buildings for Europe by Member state, see http://tool.european-calculator.eu.

In various techno-economic analysis with international partners, Judit assessed costs and benefits and the macroeconomic effects of policies and analyzed policy instruments and their design, such as white certificates and subsidy schemes. Within the Odyssee-MURE database project, she maintained the German policies section adding their evaluation. In close collaboration with the international research team in the EU Project “ENTRANZE”, she contributed to the modelling of the building stock and renovation cost in the projections for EU countries. One of her particular roles was to design the data analysis tools that handle the data for all European countries’ building stocks.

When she’s not managing projects or modelling energy scenarios, Judit enjoys biking and theorizing.
