Research Topics and Working Areas

Martin Kittel is a Ph.D. candidate at the DIW Berlin Graduate Center. Prior to DIW, Martin worked as a research associate at the Workgroup for Infrastructure Policy, Technical Institute Berlin and with Germanwatch, a development and environmental civil society organization, focusing on energy transition cooperation in Southeast Europe. He has completed internships at the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Sydney and the European utility Vattenfall, mainly working in the area of electricity market data analysis. Martin holds degrees in Business Management (M.Sc.) and Business Administration and Economics (B.Sc.) from Technical University Dresden, and spent two semesters at Teesside University in the United Kingdom.

His Master’s Thesis was devoted to the identification of representative market situation in the European electricity markets for energy system modeling. His current research interests are centered around the decarbonization of European electricity markets.
