OLIVER LÖSCH

Oliver Lösch studied physics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH). In 2010 he graduated as physicist with a German diploma degree (M.Sc.). Since June 2012 he has been working for IREES as a scientific assistant and project manager in the business unit of energy projections and technologies. Since September 2018 he is in charge of this business unit. Oliver Lösch worked for almost six years as a consultant and external collaborator for the Climate Protection Policy Unit of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMU) and has extensive knowledge of environmental policy, in particular energy, climate and resource protection policy. In addition, he has acquired in-depth knowledge of the energy- and emission-intensive production processes, in particular of the basic industries in Germany, their environmental impacts and technological process alternatives. Through his project activities, he was involved, among other things, in the preparation of the Climate Action Programme 2020 and the Climate Protection Plan 2050. Mr. Lösch has been studying part-time at the Harvard Extension School since 2016 in the Master’s programme “Sustainability”.
