Henning Nolzen

Research Interests

  • Modelling of newly emerging energy landscapes: Simulation of spatial patterns of power suppy infrastructures in context of the German energy transition, analysis of economic and environmental impacts and performance with regard to supply security.

  • Land use change modelling: Indirect land use change (ILUC) in the context of bioenergy production.
