Reinhard Haas is professor at the "Institute of Energy Systems and Electric Drives" at Vienna University of Technology in Austria. Since 1996 he leads the Energy Economics Group, a specific research group at the School of Electrical Engineering. Prof. Reinhard Haas has studied industrial economics in mechanical engineering and holds a PhD in energy economics.

Prof. Reinhard Haas worked as a research fellow at the solar power plant in Almeria/Spain, at Chalmers University in Gothenborg/Schweden, and in 1994 for half a year at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Energy Analysis Group) at University of California/Berkeley.

Currently he teaches Energy Economics, Regulation and Competition in Energy markets, and Energy Modelling, Energy Economics, Economic and ecological heating and Climate Change and Selected topics in Energy Economics. He also supervises several PhD and master theses in the field of Energy Economics.

He has worked since more than 20 years in this field. His current research focus is on (i) evaluation and modelling of of dissemination strategies for renewables, (ii) energy modelling pathways towards sustainable energy systems; (iii) liberalisation vs regulation of energy markets; (iv) energy policy strategies and (v) electricity economics and energy economics in transport. In these fields of research he has published more than 80 papers in peer-reviewed international journals (see publication list).

Moreover, he has coordinated and coordinates projects for Austrian institutions, ministeries as well as the European Commission and the International Energy Agency.

Over the last decade he has supervised and conducted research projects for the European Commission, the Austrian Ministry of Research and Science, the Austrian Foundation for Scientific Research, the Austrian National Bank, the Austrian Association of Electric Utilities, the municipal utility of Vienna and others.
He has also been the Austrian representative in various IEA research programme. Furthermore, he has acted as a guest editor together with scientists for special issues of Energy Policy and other peer-reviewed journals.
