Martha Hoffmann started working as a researcher in the Research Unit Off-Grid Systems at RLI in July 2019 after having worked there as a student assistant since November 2018. She conducts research on the simulation and optimization of locally distinguishable energy systems with sector coupling in the scope of the H2020 project E-LAND.

Martha was enrolled in the master's degree Renewable Energy Systems at TU Berlin. In context of her work, she wrote her final thesis examining the future operation options of micro grids interconnecting with weak national grids. For this, she developed a simulation and optimization tool for electric energy systems away from or connected to a central electricity grid, based on the Open Energy Modelling Framework (oemof).

Martha holds a bachelor's degree in Energy and Process Engineering from TU Berlin. After conducting a student research project dealing with swarm grids, she spent three months in India for an internship, during which she worked on electrification with micro grids.
