Alexandros joined in February 2015 to develop his Master Thesis under the Sustainable Energy for All research area. His study aimed at the analysis of the energy sector for Kakamega County in Western Kenya. The energy demand level was estimated for six selected sectors of the County namely Residential, Industrial, Transportation, Commercial, Public and Agricultural. Additionally, the renewable energy resources potential was assessed at local level using GIS and other available data. LEAP software was used in order to model and project the energy demand and supply based on three alternative scenarios till 2030, developed to support the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the County. Alexandros is currently working on the improvement of the electrification analysis tool ONSSET, in result of a KTH – ABB collaboration. Alexandros holds a degree of Industrial Engineering from Democritus University of Thrace (Greece) and an MSc in Sustainable Energy Engineering (SELECT) from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain) and the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden).
