Career

Field: Thermal Energy Systems

Main Research: District Heating and Cooling

Experience: Ralf-Roman Schmidt finished his studies of process engineering at the University of Bremen in 2005, where he received his PhD in 2013. From 2005 to 2009 he worked at the Foundation Institute of Materials Science in the field of thermo-fluid dynamics. Since 2009, he is working at the AIT, were he became soon responsible for the development and management of national and international research project in the field of district heating and cooling. In 2011, Ralf-Roman Schmidt became Deputy-Coordinator of the sub-programme on Urban Energy Networks of the EERA JP on Smart City. Additionally, he is vice chairperson of the European DHC+ Technology Platform.
