Dr. Nathan Lee is a Researcher with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). His research focuses on energy system planning and decision support, which includes broader power system planning as well as more focused work such as power sector resilience planning. His extensive international research portfolio centers on supporting energy strategy development in emerging economies. Recently, he has also led studies on the global potential for hybrid floating solar photovoltaics (PV) and hydropower and the operational benefits these systems may offer. Nathan has also supported technical potential assessments and resilience planning activities in the Lao PDR, proactive transmission planning for renewables in the Philippines, and economic potential assessments (LCOE) for utility-scale wind and solar photovoltaics in Southeast Asia. Nathan’s doctoral research focused on decision support methodologies for national energy planning in emerging economies, focused on the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
