Biography

Evangelos leads the ‘Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS)’ Project of the Energy Technology Policy Outlook Unit in the Institute for Energy and Transport of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre.

The aim of his work is to provide scientific and technical support for the conception, development and assessment of energy and climate policies of the Union through techno-economic assessments and targeted analysis of low-carbon energy technologies, addressing their potential, benefits and barriers to their large scale deployment. The current focus of his work is the implementation of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and specifically the management and operation of the European Commission’s SET-Plan Information System (SETIS). In this context, the CCUS project of the JRC assesses the potential impact of CCUS technologies in the European energy system with regards to greenhouse gas emissions reduction, industrial competitiveness and primary energy use; investigates the technical and economic feasibility of CO2 re-use technologies; and assesses the barriers to their potential large-scale deployment in the European industrial and power sectors.

Evangelos holds materials engineering degrees from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece (Diploma) and Drexel University in Philadelphia, USA (PhD). He has published more than 30 papers in peer review scientific journals, several Commission reports and has presented his work in numerous international conferences.
