Prof. Brian Ó Gallachóir is a Professor of Energy Policy and Modelling in University College Cork (UCC). His research focus is on i) bottom up techno-economic modelling of sectoral energy demand, ii) electricity dispatch modelling and iii) energy systems optimisation using TIMES. Brian is elected Chair of the International Energy Agency (IEA)’s Executive Committee on Energy Technology Systems Analysis Programme (IEA-ETSAP). He is a Vice-Chair of Energy Cork and a member of the Gas Innovation Group. Brian is also Director of UCC's taught Masters (MEngSc) Programme in Sustainable Energy. He has authored over 50 peer reviewed journal papers and over 80 peer reviewed conference papers and has a h-index of 22. An applied sciences graduate of Dublin Institue of Technology, Brian moved to Cork in 1990 to carry out a Doctoral research programme in ocean wave energy in the Department of Applied Mathematics. From 1995 - 1998, Brian was Technical Manager of the Renewable Energy Information Office of Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.

Conflicts between Energy Policy Objectives and NCCS in Ireland , a research project funded by the Environmental Protection Agency, through the Environmental RTDI Programme. The aim of this project is to inform the successful implementation of the National Climate Change Strategy. This will be realised by increasing knowledge and addressing key information gaps surrounding the interactions between energy policies and the NCCS measures relating to the electricity supply sector.

Study on the Economic Analysis of RE Support Mechanisms in the Electricity Generation Sector , a research project funded by  Sustainable Energy Ireland under its Renewable Energy Research, Development and Demonstration Programme. The study is co-ordinated by the Energy Economics Group in Vienna University of Technology and the other project partners are Ecofys and Distributed Energy Compnay. It provides a detailed technical, economic, financial and regulatoy analysis of the various market based renewable energy support mechanisms the may be employed to meet Irish RE targets going forward. See Final Report

Measuring and Monitoring the Sustainability of Energy Trends, a research project funded by the Higher Education Authority, under the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions. This is one of 5 projects under the strategic research area Sustainable Energy which is itself one of 9 areas around which UCC's Environmental Research Institute will be built.
