Carsten Dortans (160)Carsten Dortans is a PhD candidate at the Centre for Sustainability. He is originally from the Ruhr-area in Germany (North-Rhine-Westphalia) and has lived in New Zealand since June 2017. Carsten finished his Bachelor of Arts in Energy and Water management at the University of Applied Sciences Ruhr West in Germany and was co-supervised at the Centre for Sustainability.

Carsten completed his Masters of Arts with Distinction at the University of Otago focusing on the estimation of the technical potential for residential household appliances to reduce daily peak electricity demand in New Zealand.

His PhD investigates the socio-technical changes at the grid edge and their implications for electricity system flexibility in New Zealand.
