Malte Oehlmann
Dipl. Economics Engineering (eq. MSc)
Project Manager

Malte Oehlmann is a Project Manager at adelphi working in the fields of green economy and resources. He is currently working on the empirical relationship between income, consumption and resource use as well as the evaluation of economic instruments for air pollution control.

Malte is experienced in empirical research in the social sciences with a particular focus on quantitative survey methods and econometric models. In addition, he is experienced in the economic valuation of environmental goods as well as the coordination and execution of research projects in the fields of energy economics as well as renewable energies.

Prior to his employment at adelphi, Malte worked for three and a half years as a research associate at the Chair in Environmental and Land Economics at Technische Universität Berlin, Germany. As part of an interdisciplinary joint research project he analysed the efficient and fair distribution of renewable energy production and the expansion of Germany’s power grid. In this context he took part in the design, implementation and evaluation of two nation-wide representative surveys. Furthermore, he completed a research stay at the Department of Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology at the University of Alberta, Canada. The research stay was funded by a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Malte is currently completing his PhD at the same department at Technische Universität Berlin, analysing methodological issues regarding choice experiments.

Malte studied economics engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, and the Universidad de Salamanca, Spain. During his studies he focused on energy economics, environmental economics and environmental policy as well as innovation economics. He completed his diploma thesis on power generation from ocean currents at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at California State University, Northridge, USA. Alongside his studies he gathered practical experience in the order management and program management at Volkswagen de México, Puebla as well as in the field of climate and energy at the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) in Berlin, Germany.
