Bio


Clothilde Venereau is a M.S. student in the Benson Lab in the department of Energy and Resources Engineering. Her research focuses on assessing the impact of buildings electrification on electric load shapes and demand in California. She also works on capacity expansion modelling of California’s grid to meet its 2030 and 2045 decarbonization goals under different electrification scenarios. Before coming to Stanford, Clothilde received a M.S. from Imperial College London and spent a year as a visiting researcher at U.C. Berkeley.
