Personal profile

Personal information

Patrícia Fortes is a post-doctoral researcher in field of energy economics, working at CENSE research Center. Her research explores the transition to low carbon energy systems, focusing in technological changes, macroeconomic impacts and energy-climate policies analysis. She has more than 10 years of experience in energy system and computable general equilibrium modelling, in particular the linkage between the technological TIMES and the economic GEM-E3 models for Portugal. She has worked in the Joint Research Center of Seville of the European Commission (2015) in the development of the POTEnCIA (Policy Oriented Tool for Energy and Climate Change Impact Assessment) model and coopered in multiple national and international research projects on energy-economy-environment modeling. She has also an extensive experience on policy support, having worked on the development of the National Low Carbon Roadmap (2012), the National Climate Change Program (2014), as well as, the Portuguese Green Tax Reform (2014). She has a PhD in Environment from NOVA University of Lisbon (2014).
