Dr Mathaios Panteli



I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Resilient, Low-Carbon Energy Systems at the Power and Energy Division, The University of Manchester, UK.

Books on the Desk

A new paper accepted, a bit different but vitally important on the importance of bringing together climate and energy modellers towards greener and more secure energy networks!

I am a power systems engineer working as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) since 2017 in the Power and Energy Division at The University of Manchester, UK, currently leading a team of ten researchers (5 post-doctoral research associates and 5 PhD students). My research focuses on the development of integrated techno-economic frameworks for supporting the decision-making and planning of resilient, low-carbon energy networks and interdependent critical infrastructures.

I have published more than 60 research articles in high-impact journals and international conferences, and delivered more than 30 invited presentations in world-leading conferences and organizations (including Universities, regulators and network operators). I hold a research portfolio of total worth >£10m, funded by the UK research councils, the European commission and industrial stakeholders. The applications and impact of my research works expands beyond Europe to countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa. I was a leading member of the team that was awarded the 2018 Newton Prize, an annual award by the British government to international projects that demonstrated excellence in impact, research and innovation.

I am an IEEE Senior Member, IET CEng and the co-chair of the CIGRE WG C4.47 "Power System Resilience". I am also currently the co-chair of the Climate Adaptation WG in the EPSRC Supergen Energy Networks Hub. I have contributed to several industrial outputs (e.g., the recent report by the Energy Research Partnership, UK, on the UK electricity system resilience) and professional outputs (e.g., the reference paper from the CIGRE WG C4.47 on defining power system resilience and the resilience report by the CIRED WG on Distribution Grid Resilience).

I am interested in working with highly motivated and talented researchers in these (or similar) areas. Please see current vacancies here or get in touch if you are interested in working together.

Research Interests

Resilience assessment and adaptation to high-impact, low-probability events

Risk and resilience-based planning considering flexibility and uncertainty

Grid integration of low-carbon, distributed energy technologies
