StudentPhD Anne-​​Perrine Avrin

Anne-​​Perrine is a PhD stu­dent in the Energy and Resources Group and a research fel­low within the energy com­pany Areva. In the Renew­able and Appro­pri­ate Energy Lab­o­ra­tory, her research focuses on long-​​term capac­ity expan­sion plan­ning for the energy mix in China, and quan­ti­ta­tive meth­ods to adjust least-​​cost energy tran­si­tion path­ways by tak­ing uncer­tainty on cost pro­jec­tions into account. She is par­tic­u­larly inter­ested in the chal­lenges posed by high pen­e­tra­tion lev­els of vari­able renew­able ener­gies in cen­tral­ized power grids, and in the devel­op­ment of advanced nuclear tech­nolo­gies and elec­tric vehi­cles in Asia. She is also inter­ested in inter­na­tional col­lab­o­ra­tions around energy poli­cies and energy inno­va­tion between the United States and Europe, and has co-​​organized a debate, on behalf of the French Min­istry of Energy and the Con­sulate Gen­eral of France in San Fran­cisco, about the vision of Bay-​​Area expa­tri­ates on the French energy transition.

Anne-​​Perrine holds an MSc in indus­trial and nuclear engi­neer­ing from France, and has worked on nuclear safety and non-​​proliferation top­ics in France, China and the US before start­ing her PhD at Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Berkeley.
