I have found that my studies at UCL have been tremendously beneficial. 

Since graduation, I have been working in my home country of Iceland as an energy and environmental consultant. My clients have been power companies, the Icelandic TSO, aluminium smelters and other smaller users and producers of electricity. I have advised on investment in wind-farms, done efficiency analyses of distribution firms, submarine interconnectors, and helped to develop sustainability indicators.  Most recently, I have been involved in transmission system planning for 2017-2018. I am currently assisting data centre investors, by developing business plans and analysing scaling and cooling methods.
