Prof Fabiano Pallonetto


I have a wide experience in the energy, IT and transport sectors working as an entrepreneur, data scientist and researcher across different industries and disciplines. My academic background in Computer Science and Engineering and my industry experience in Energy, Sustainable Mobility, Data Analytics, Control Algorithms and Optimisation makes me a pivotal asset for research based and commercial data centric projects. My goal is bridging academic research to industrial needs applying my multidisciplinary industry and entrepreneurship experience to build solutions and solve technical challenges for the deployment and integration of the smart grid and its associated carbon footprint reduction and promoting Sustainable Development Goals.

Research Projects

Title Role Description Start date End date Amount
Next Generation Energy Systems Funded Investigator By 2027, NexSys will have identified credible, just, and accelerated pathways for a net zero energy system, and have developed technologies and talent needed for the energy transition. In NexSys, we seek to collaborate as a multi-disciplinary team to provide technology development and evidence-based insights to the energy transition, through multi-dimensional research and outreach that is focused on equity for energy citizens and practical solutions for industry. 01/01/2022 01/12/2027
FLOW - Flexible Energy Systems by leveraging the optimal integration of EVs and their users Principal Investigator and WP Leader FLOW tests, validates and enhances user-centric V2X smart charging solutions and their orchestrated integration into energy grids that deliver flexibility assets to favour additional penetration of renewables and alleviate energy grid challenges. 01/07/2022 01/07/2026
RES4CITY - Renewable Energies System for Cities Coordinator A carbon-neutral European Union by 2050 is an ambitious target that presents technical and societal challenges. While technical research is advancing rapidly to reach a net-zero target, the overall skillsets of the working force are lagging behind in understanding, employing and mastering sustainable technologies for the business models. Therefore, the RES4City project envisions a codesigned educational framework for upskilling the workforce to integrate, influence and combine the current sustainability best practices for renewable energies and fuel technologies. 01/10/2022 01/10/2025
