James Glynn

Energy Researcher, Environmental Research Institute, University College Cork

James Glynn is an energy researcher for the Environmental Research Institute at University College Cork. James' research interests focus on the feedbacks between the energy system and economy, and researches these dynamics through integrated energy systems models such as Irish TIMES (Irish) and TIAM (Global), applied to the development of national energy security indices and integrated assessment of climate mitigation. His most recent publications explore zero carbon energy system pathways for Ireland consistent with the Paris Agreement and the impact of local air pollution on equitable global decarbonisation and he is leading an international research project exploring the role of carbon capture and storage in global Integrated Assessment models. James holds PhD in Energy Engineering (UCC), an M.Sc. in Energy Systems and the Environment (Strathclyde), an M.A. in Economic and Environmental Modelling (NUIG), and a B.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering (NUIG).
