Ms. Nieves Espinosa
European Commission JRC, Seville, Spain
Internationally educated in energy and environmental sciences, I hold a PhD the field of organic photovoltaics. Life cycle assessment was the tool used to direct research in the area of materials for semiconductors and more efficient manufacturing processes. My interdisciplinary skills include research to inform policy making in the field of energy-efficient systems and energy related product policies. For which I have devised sustainable criteria, and assessed the impacts of manufacturability, use conditions and costs by using quantitative methods. My design-driven career has a focus on environmental analysis for the development of innovative designs for other applications than solar photovoltaic technologies, such as LEDs, fuel cells and energy storage technologies.
