Reiner Lemoine Institut
Katrin Lammers works at the Reiner Lemoine Institut as a researcher specializing in the development of off-grid energy systems that can withstand the effects of climate change. She is also investigating the potential for electrification of healthcare facilities and surrounding communities with solar energy systems in Ghana, and is therefore estimating energy demands and modeling appropriate energy systems. Katrin is currently completing her dissertation, which examines electricity access and climate change impacts on Southeast Asian islands. Sustainable electricity access is a prerequisite for many adaptation measures. Therefore, she investigated what climate resilient energy systems can look like to maintain positive adaptation potentials for local communities. Katrin is concerned about climate change and wants to integrate climate change risk assessments into energy system planning. She is particularly passionate about environmental protection, energy transition, and social justice.
