2021-03-10

On March 4, David Lingfors began his position as Assistant Professor in Civil Engineering with specialization in Solar Energy in the Built Environment at the Division of Civil Engineering and Built Environment.

David got his PhD degree at the Department of Engineering Sciences, Uppsala University, in 2017. The title of his thesis was Solar Variability Assessment in the Built Environment: Model Development and Application to Grid Integration. He has since then worked as a postdoc and researcher at the division of Civil Engineering and Built Environment. David's research is focused on the integration of solar energy into the built environment. Currently he is leading a project which explores the potential benefits of co-locating wind and solar parks.

“As Assistant Professor, my teaching will focus on existing courses in energy systems and the built environment within the division, but also on developing new courses and master programs in collaboration with teachers from other disciplines that deals with a sustainable and energy efficient use and refurbishment of the built environment,” David explains. “In my research I will continue to explore factors that influence a resource-efficient implementation of renewable energy, foremost photovoltaics, into the energy system."
