Saber Talari is a postdoctoral researcher at the Faculty of Management, Economics, and Social Sciences at the University of Cologne. He works on energy market issues at Professor Wolfgang Ketter’s Chair for Information Systems for Sustainable Society.
Saber received both BSc and MSc in electrical and computer engineering in Iran. During the master’ study, he worked on the operation of Microgrids in day-ahead market while considering the intermittent nature of renewable resources production and electric demand. After graduation in 2013, Saber started his career as a researcher at both academic and industrial sectors working on electric retail markets as well as different topics of renewable energy sources particularly solar energy systems.
In 2016, Saber started his PhD at electrical and computer engineering faculty of University of Beira Interior, Portugal. His doctoral dissertation aimed to investigate proper market schemes to implement demand side management considering different market players’ objectives. In the middle of the PhD, he had the chance to spend a few months as a visiting scholar at North China Electric Power University, and also Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy System Technology, Germany. After receiving his PhD in April 2019, he joined the grid planning and operation division of Fraunhofer-IEE as a scientific researcher to deal with the operation challenges of future power grids with high penetration of renewable resources within European projects.
Saber Talari’s research interests are energy markets, stochastic optimization, demand side management and renewable resources. The results of his works have been published in several conferences, journals and books.
