Before that, he worked as a research associate at Vienna University of Technology from 2005 to 2011 where he was dealing with energy scenarios and decarbonisation roadmaps. Christian studied at Vienna University of Technology and holds a PhD in energy economics.

German power market developments June 2020 vs. June 2019: More electricity from natural gas while coal-fired generation is massively reduced. Electricity demand continues to be weak and also renewables lose compared to June 2019. pic.twitter.com/nBCHDHiU2Z

Strommarkt-Vergleich Juni 2020/Juni 2019: Deutlich mehr Strom aus Erdgas, Kohleverstromung lässt hingegen massiv nach. Stromverbrauch weiter gering und auch EE verlieren im Vergleich zum Vorjahresmonat. pic.twitter.com/EwlRsuZyBQ

German power generation in June 2020: Renewables (especially PV) have a hard time beating the exceptionally hot June 2019. However, due to the continued weaker electricity demand, the share remains at 46%. Most powerful force is natural gas, lignite only ranks 3rd. pic.twitter.com/WOo46yt3y5
