Fernando de Sisternes is an energy specialist at the World Bank's Energy and Extractives Global Practice and a research affiliate at MIT's Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research (CEEPR). His work and interest have been focused on analyzing the economic and policy implications of decarbonizing the electric power sector using a multidisciplinary approach based on regulatory economics, operations research and financial engineering. He has developed state-of-the-art analytical tools and projects to quantify the economic value of new energy technologies, the price of risk of different electricity generation technology options, and the impact of energy policies and market designs on greenhouse gas emissions. He has more than ten years of experience in the energy sector and his work has been published in academic journals such as IEEE Transactions on Power Systems and Energy Economics . In the past, he has worked for the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, the International Energy Agency in Paris, the Spanish Wind Energy Association, the wind power developer and manufacturer Gamesa, and for other organizations as an independent energy policy consultant. He holds a Ph.D in Engineering Systems and a M.S. degree in Technology and Policy, both from MIT.
