Martin Beuse

Centre Researcher


Martin Beuse is a PhD candidate with the Energy Politics Group at ETH Zurich (Switzerland), working on battery technologies and distributed energy. His research focuses on the intersection of engineering and public policy. From September through November 2019, he was a Visiting Researcher with the C-EENRG working with Prof. Laura Diaz Anadon. The research collaboration that was started then has been ongoing since. As a C-EENRG Researcher, Martin is developing cost models to quantify technology spillovers in lithium-ion batteries. The objective of this work is to understand the role of spillovers in technological progress and to derive implications for public policy to accelerate innovation in clean energy technologies.

Martin has extensive international experience in the energy industry. As Senior Consultant for e.on, he supported the ramp-up and internationalization of the PV and battery business. As an independent advisor he supports startups, incumbents, and investors with insights on battery technology, markets and business models in increasingly decentralized, decarbonized, and digital energy systems.

Martin holds a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from TU Braunschweig (Germany), during which he gained additional work experience with Siemens, RWE Power, RWE Consulting (Germany, Czech Republic), and NORD/LB (NYC, US).
