Short presentation

I am a senior lecturer and heads the Global Energy Systems Research group. My research deals with availability and production of fossil fuels with focus on oil and coal, but also supply of other natural resouces such as lithium and other raw materials for clean/green energy technologies. In addition, I study energy systems developments, sustainability and energy security.

I teach courses focusing on energy systems, energy security analysis, natural resources, and sustainability.

Keywords: climate change energy security resource materialities sustainability sustainable development resource depletion peak oil coal future studies energy system analysis

Mikael Höök is an Associate Professor in Natural Resources and Sustainable Development at Uppsala University in Sweden, where he leads the research group Global Energy Systems.
