Mike Roberts

Research Associate

Mike is a Research Associate in CEEM and at the School for Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering at UNSW and a Solar Analyst at the Australian PV Institute. His research includes technical and economic data analysis and policy approaches for distributed renewables and the energy transition. Particular interests include distributed photovoltaics, demand management, energy storage, mini-grids and embedded networks, solar potential assessment and community renewable energy. Mike's doctoral thesis explored opportunities and barriers for deployment of distributed PV on multi-occupancy residential buildings.
