Thomas Remke has been a scientific staff member at GERICS working for the Helmholtz-Initiative Climate Adaptation and Mitigation (HI-CAM) on the project DRIVERS. HI-CAM combines expertise of the entire Helmholtz Association across various research fields to jointly develop solutions concerning climate change adaptation and mitigation. Within the project DRIVERS, Thomas processes state-of-the-art climate information for Germany which provides the basis for subsequent cross-sectoral impact modelling and develops climate impact indicators.
As a climate scientist by training, Thomas recently submitted his PhD thesis which he conducted under supervision of Prof. Dr. Daniela Jacob at GERICS. In his research, he assessed climate change impacts on wind energy financing. Thomas’ thesis contributes to the quantification and assessment of climate-related impacts on the project financing in the wind energy sector, thus, supporting practitioners adapting to climate change.
