Energy system as a whole is extremely complex
By Dr. -Ing. Marek Miara, Coordinator Heat Pumps, Fraunhofer ISE
Dr. -Ing. Marek Miara has a profound experience in the renewable energy field, with the focus of his work lying on the efficiency determination and evaluation of heat pump systems, rational energy use and buildings with low energy consumption. For the past 12 years he has been working for the Fraunhofer Institut for Solar Energy Systems ISE, where he heads the group Heat Pumps and, in particular, leads a large-scale monitoring projects on heat pumps efficiency. In addition to national projects, he oversees international EU projects and activities in the framework of the IEA Heat Pump Programme. Dr. Miara is a member of normalisation committees VDI and a co-founder and member of board of the Polish Heat Pump Association (PORT PC). In the field of heat pumps, he published technical papers and made numerous presentations in a vast number of national and international conferences.
Dr. Miara has a doctor degree in engineering, defended at the Wroclaw University of Technology in 2014 with a PhD thesis, “Assessing Efficiency of Heat Pumps. Analytic Method Integrating Ecological, Energetic and Economical Aspects”. He is a graduate of the Kassel University (2004, Master Post-graduate) in the field Energy and Environment, Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and of the Wroclaw University of Technology (2000, Master) in Civil Engineering.
As he states, energy system as a whole is extremely complex. This complexity is particularly visible in cities – both from the supply and the demand side. Constantly growing cities are of ever-growing importance in the today’s world and they need various types of energy for a variety of usage. It will not be possible to decarbonise the whole energy system without decarbonisation of the (smart) energy supply for the cities, to meet the total needs of each individual living there.
