Dr Marko Aunedi
Senior Lecturer in Electronic and Electrical Engineering


Marko Aunedi is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Brunel University London with 23 years of research experience in energy system modelling and optimisation. He obtained his MEng and MSc degrees from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, and his PhD from Imperial College London. Between 2007 and 2023 he held several positions at Imperial College London, most recently the role of Advanced Research Fellow.

Marko's research interests cover system integration of renewables and low-carbon technologies in future energy systems, impact assessment of heat and transport electrification, integrated whole-energy system modelling, impact of flexible demand and benefits of energy storage. His expertise lies in building optimisation and simulation models for low-carbon energy systems.

Marko contributed to many European and UK-based research projects focused on energy system flexibility and grid impact of transport and heat decarbonisation. He has led several strategically important studies on the value of flexibility for energy system decarbonisation carried out for organisations such as the Climate Change Committee (CCC), BEIS, Ofgem and Carbon Trust, as well as for many industrial partners.

Marko has published over 40 papers and delivered invited lectures on smart grids and energy storage in various events around the world. He regularly reviews manuscripts for leading energy journals and research project proposals for EPSRC, Innovate UK and Latvian Council of Science. As an external expert, he has worked with major international organisations such as IRENA, IEA, IAEA and the UNFCCC Secretariat.
