Warren Schenler received his BS in Engineering Physics from Oregon State University, Masters in the Technology and Policy and Operations Research programs at MIT, and his PhD in Energy Systems and Policy from the Nuclear Engineering department at MIT. Following a post-doc at ETHZ, he came to PSI in 2001, and is now in the Technology Assessment Group within the Laboratory for Energy Systems Analysis, which belongs jointly under both the General and Nuclear Engineering Departments. Within LEA, he is responsible for the economic cost analysis of electric power systems, including generation technologies, systems interactions and multi-attribute, multi-scenario analysis. His other responsibilities and interests include multi-criteria decision analysis, heuristic vehicle modeling, and analysis of cogeneration, geothermal, wave and hydrogen energy technologies.
In the SCCER SoE, Warren Schenler contributes to Task 4.2 “Global Observatory”, where he is involved in cost assessment, technology characterization and integration analysis.
