About me – Amir Vadiee

I am employed as a lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Systems within the School of Business, Society and Engineering at Mälardalen University. I got my PhD degree in 2013 from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden. Before I started working at MDH, I had worked as Assistant Professor at Shiraz University of Technology (Sutech) in Iran.

Educational background

I hold a PhD in Energy Engineering from the Division of Applied Heat and Power Technology, Department of Energy at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) for my research on energy management in large-scale solar buildings. I obtained a MSc degree in Sustainable Energy Engineering from KTH, Sweden, and a BSc in Thermo-fluid Mechanical Engineering from Shiraz University, Iran.

Teaching and supervision background

I have had various teaching assignments as guest lecturer, lecturer, main course responsible and examiner in more than 12 courses in first, second and third cycle level. I have supervised 21 MSc students and 4 BSc students and I have been assigned as opponent and examiner for two PhD students and three MSc students, so far at KTH, Sutech, and Linnaeus University, Sweden.

My current assignments

Primarily, I am involved in some building engineering program courses. Secondarily, I do some research within the Future Energy Center (FEC).

My focus of research

  • ​Energy system modelling, conceptual design and optimization.
  • Solar energy integrated systems and specifically solar buildings.
  • Thermal energy storage for low and medium temperature application.
  • Innovative passive solution in energy conservation methods for commercial and residential building.
  • Nearly zero, net zero and plus energy building integrated with polygeneration systems.
  • Energy analysis and multidimensional assessment on district heating and cooling system integrated with renewable energy technologies.
  • Effects of energy efficiency measures in district-heated buildings on energy supply and ground source heat pump aided heating system on primary energy demand.
  • Thermo-economic and enviro-economic assessment on heat and power generation system integrated with renewable energy technologies in different climate conditions.
