Birgit Schachler has been working as a researcher in the research field Transformation of Energy Systems at RLI since February 2014. The main focus of her work is on the modelling and simulation of power and heat supply systems and system components in Python and Matlab. While she studied in the master's degree program Energy and Process Technologies at TU Berlin, she specialized in thermal power plants.

Birgit spent one year as a guest student at the University of Iceland, studying geothermal power generation. In her master's thesis, she analyzed the use of combined heat and power plants in an energy system with increasing shares of renewable energy. In addition to her work at RLI, Birgit is currently enrolled in the master's degree program Computer Science at TU Berlin.
