Meet Dr. Taco Niet: Assistant Professor of Professional Practice, Sustainable Energy Engineering

June 28, 2019

We are pleased to announce that Taco Niet is joining SFU's SEE program as an Assistant Professor of Professional Practice in June. Niet’s research focuses on energy-systems modelling and the system challenges related to sustainable development such as the integration of wind, solar and storage. He has taught mechanical engineering at BCIT since 2003 and contributes to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs’ (UN DESA) initiative to build energy modelling capabilities in emerging economies.

“The current transitions in the energy system, including the addition of variable renewables and the uptake of electric vehicles, is changing the way the system operates, making this an exciting field to be working in. I look forward to helping students see how energy-system interconnections impact their lives and those of others around the world.”
