About Vlad

Vlad Duboviks joined GE Energy Consulting in February 2017 as a Senior Engineer where he has focused on the development of European power market models. His areas of expertise include: power production modeling, grid integration of renewables, and techno-economic analysis of grid balancing with energy storage. He leverages this expertise in conducting techno-economic evaluations of energy generation assets and providing clients with expert information on energy-market dynamics.

In his current role, Vlad focuses on modeling and analysis of European power markets using linear optimization software. In this context he provides consulting support for projects evaluating diverse investment options in the power-generation sector. Most recently, Vlad was a lead analyst on a project evaluating various investment strategies for the major power market stakeholder in Ukraine. Beyond the European power markets, Vlad's expertise extends to island power systems, and the challenges they frequently pose for renewable integration. He is currently supporting a renewable integration consulting project in Hawaii, the state that is leading the United States in terms of solar and battery storage adoption.

Before joining GE Energy Consulting, Vlad was a Senior Consultant at Element Energy, a low-carbon energy consultancy based in London. He was a lead analyst on several projects that evaluated the efficiency of pathways to a reduction of CO2 emissions in the UK. Additional experience includes: delivering models and technical reports to the UK Department for Transport (DfT), Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) and National Grid (NG).

Prior to that, Vlad consulted for Imperial Consultants on projects related to commercialization of novel power sources.
