Myriam Neaimeh has a BsE in communication engineering and a M.S. in Environmental Sciences and Policy with a focus on energy. She joined the Transport Operations Research Group at Newcastle University, UK in November 2011 to work on the electro-mobility demonstration project Switch EV. Her research includes analysing journey and charging information from the electric vehicles to help inform future policies on electric transport.
Myriam undertook her M.S. dissertation with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester. She developed a reliability evaluation model of power systems and a wind power capacity value calculation model. Moreover, she developed an algorithm to estimate the projected hourly demand in Great Britain following the electrification of the residential heat sector. Using the models, she examined the integration effects of residential electric storage heaters on the capacity value of wind power and the reliability of the power system in Great Britain.
Myriam has also worked for the Centre for Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Policy (3CSEP) in Budapest on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change special report on renewable energy. Beforehand, she worked as a Technical Energy Engineer with the United Nations Development Programme in Lebanon where she prepared the national strategy to phase out inefficient lighting. She also provided technical assistance to the Clean Development Mechanism projects and administered the early stages of a Greek Government donated-project to install renewable energy and energy saving applications in Lebanon.
