DONG Energy Professor of Renewable Energy, Durham University

Generally, Janusz's research deals with achieving stable, secure, sustainable and economic supply of electricity while meeting the challenges of reducing CO2 emissions – please see his interview in 17 October 2011 edition of New Statesman. His particular expertise is in technical and economic integration of renewable generation in the power system, preventing electricity blackouts. He is also an expert on power system dynamics. His main engineering background is in electricity networks but his research is interdisciplinary in nature and he collaborates closely with economists, statisticians, mathematicians, social scientists and computer scientists. Although Janusz is mainly interested in tackling long-term fundamental research problems, and as such his research tends to be primarily funded by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), he also works regularly with transmission and distribution network operators, government agencies, and consultancies. In recognition of his research achievements, Janusz has been elected Fellow of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) “for contributions to transmission pricing and power system dynamics”. IEEE is the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology.

Janusz has published 2 books, 2 chapters in books, 8 published reports and about 140 research papers including over 40 academic journal papers. The publications have attracted over 2,600 citations according to Google Scholar. His two seminal sole-authored papers on electricity tracing have attracted over 900 citations according to Google Scholar.

Janusz has been a consultant to the UK government, International Energy Agency, European Commission, Scottish Government, Elexon, Polish Power Grid Company, Scottish Power and Enron.
