In consulting project, he advised the energy-intensive industry on the impact of the coal phase-out on industrial electricity prices and investigated the impact of natural gas import pipelines on European gas markets. In studies and discussion papers, he addressed regulatory issues of hydrogen, including the regulation of hydrogen grids, power purchase options for water electrolysis, and the competitiveness of hydrogen. His research focuses on energy system modeling with a focus on hydrogen integration. He is currently investigating the integration of hydrogen into the gas system in the publicly funded research project “Strom zu Gas und Wärme”. Before joining EWI, David Schlund studied industrial engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with a focus on energy economics, service management and digitalization.
