Danae Diakoulaki

Professor of Economic Analysis and Policy with focus on Energy and Environment at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). Former Director of the Laboratory of Industrial and Energy Economics at NTUA during the period 2008-2015.

She teaches Economics and Management at a graduate level and Energy and Environmental Economics in postgraduate courses. Since the early 90’s her research activities focus on Energy and Environmental Economics and Policy with the aim to support the deployment of innovative and environmentally friendly technologies, exploiting Renewable Energy Sources and the Energy Saving potential. In this direction, her research concentrates on energy planning, the assessment of energy externalities and the formulation of supporting policies for energy and environment. She is also developing and implementing methods and tools such as Multi Criteria Analysis, Cost- Benefit Analysis, Decomposition Analysis by taking into account the existence of multiple competing criteria, the conflicting views of stakeholders, the market’s failures and many uncertainties characterizing objective parameters and subjective judgements.

She was member of an Experts Group at the European Environment Agency (1999-2003), member of Board of the National Centre for Sustainable Development (2001-04), member of Board of the Public Power Corporation-Renewables S.A. (2010-13) and of other scientific associations.
