Fabian Schipfer studied Physics at the University of Vienna, Austria and the University of Sevilla, Spain. Since 2012 he is working for the Energy Economics Group with the focus on the market introduction and market diffusion of bioenergy technologies and their respective commodities. He graduated in 2017 with his Dissertation "Densification and conversion technologies for bioenergy and advanced biobased material supply chains - a European case study". In several national and international research and consultant projects he conducts techno-economic assessments from a system perspective on biomass-to-end-use chains for modern and traditional bioenergy carriers and biomaterials. His main tools include desktop research, modelling, scenario building, -modelling and -discussion based on scientific interdisciplinary exchange and cooperation as well as communication with and towards stakeholder and policy makers.
