Pieter is an industrial ecologist and specialized in energy systems, life cycle assessments
and agent based modelling. The topic of his Master’s thesis was the global energy transition
within 1.5 degrees. The work entailed developing energy transition scenarios for industry,
transport and the built environment up to 2050 and provided relevant new insights. One of the
key outcomes revealed that system integration is absolutely necessary to mitigate climate
change as fast as reasonably possible.
Pieter is experienced in working in interdisciplinary teams, and integrating the broad spectrum
of disciplines involved in complex challenges.
