Oliver Broad is a Senior Research Associate at the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources. His work focuses on the use and development of optimisation modelling frameworks to analyse policy and investment in relation to bioenergy and the decarbonization of heat in the UK.

Under UKERC phase 3, he collaborated with the University of Strathclyde to bridge the gap between detailed engineering models of local electricity networks and their aggregate representations in long-term heat decarbonisation scenarios for the UK.

Under UKERC phase 4, Oliver is working on the development of a regional version of the national UK TIMES model to better understand the dynamics between local and national decision making in relation to system decarbonisation.

Previous work includes collaborations the World Bank and the United Nations focusing on analytical modelling, energy planning and capacity building in developing Africa and Latin America.
