Martha Hoffmann

In her doctoral studies, Martha is working on the realization of a socially just and accepted energy transition. For this, she plans to add social and ecological aspects to the current technical and economical focus within energy transition planning processes. The development of an integrated energy system model will assess the impact of energy market reforms on community and household level as well as their implications for distributive justice.

Her work is supervised by Prof. Dr. Pao-Yu Oei from the Department of Energy and Environmental Management at Europa-Universität Flensburg (EUF).

Martha wrote her final thesis within the scope of her masters’ degree regenerative energy systems at the TU Berlin in the research group Off-Grid Systems at the Reiner Lemoine Institut and developed the simulation tool Offgridders, which sizes electrification options. Following  this, from 2019 to 2021, she worked as a researcher at the Reiner Lemoine Institut and was responsible for the project management within the scope of the H2020 research project E-LAND, in which RLI develops and applies a simulation tool for sector coupled energy systems (Multi-Vector Simulator). In 2022 she supports E-LAND in advisory capacity. Martha’s fellowship is financed through the C-BEAR+ project (link: , funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action of Germany.

She will be a visiting scholar at RAEL and ERG for Spring 2023. Contact:
