Vladimir Koritarov

Principal Energy Systems Engineer
- Global Security Sciences

Vladimir Koritarov is the Deputy Director of the Center for Energy, Environmental, and Economic Systems Analysis in the Decision and Information Sciences Division.  The Center provides analytical services on strategic energy and environmental issues to government agencies, international organizations, and private institutions around the world.

He has 30 years of experience in the analysis and modeling of electric and energy systems in domestic and international applications.

Most recently, Koritarov has been working on the development of new agent-based modeling approaches for the simulation of energy and electricity markets, and applying advanced simulation methods to study the role and possible evolution of non-conventional energy resources, such as renewable generation and energy storage.

A large component of his work relates to technology transfer, capacity building, and providing technical assistance and training to developing countries. He has managed numerous energy and environmental projects, and provided technical assistance to more than 30 countries.
