Anne Gerd Imenes majored as Cand. Scient. in Environmental Physics at the Norwegian University of Life Science (UMB) in 1999, and holds a PhD degree in Applied Physics from the University of Sydney in 2006. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Solar Energy Centre of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Newcastle, Australia and worked briefly as a researcher there, before returning to Norway at the end of 2008. Anne Gerd has worked at Teknova since January 2009, and currently holds a part-time position in the Smart Instrumentation group. She is working at Teknovas location in Grimstad. Since 2017, she is also a professor in the Department of Engineering Sciences at the University of Agder.
Anne Gerd has aquired both theoretical knowledge and practical experience in applied and environmental physics, renewable energy sources, optical modelling, system optimization, high- and low-temperature solar energy systems as well as photovoltaic systems, solar radiation measurements and outdoor testing. She has worked with with flat-plate solar collectors for domestic hot water and floor heating systems in collaboration with the Energy Physics group at the University of Oslo, and on the design and optimization of optical filters for solar concentrating systems in Australia, where she participated in the commissioning and testing of a prototype solar tower system. At Teknova she has worked on various publicly and industrially financed projects, including small-scale hydro power, zero energy houses, smart-grid systems, energy storage solutions, monitoring technology, sustainability, and foresight processes. Her main competence is in the area of solar energy applications and photovoltaic systems, and she is currently involved in national and international projects on building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), PV monitoring systems, and PV system performance analysis.
