About Steven Percy

Steven is a Research Fellow at the Victoria Energy Policy Centre (VEPC). He leads the Centre's research in energy storage and wholesale electricity markets.

At VEPC, Steven has co-authored numerous reports providing advice to governments, regulators and interest groups. At VU, he has developed the NEM-CEED model, an optimisation model of the National Energy Market, allowing electricity market forecasts and scenario analysis over the coming decade.

He has research interests in energy transitions, renewable energy, market power, the economics of battery storage, energy policy, market dynamics, distributed generation and demand-side energy. He has advanced programming, machine learning and optimisation skills, and implements cloud computing to handle big data to answer complex research questions.

Steven received his Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from the University of Sydney in 2009. From 2009 to 2014, Steven worked as a Research Engineer at CSIRO Energy Technology, Australia. In 2018, Steven completed a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Melbourne.
