Prof Manfred Lenzen

Manfred Lenzen is Professor of Sustainability Research at the University of Sydney, and leader of the Integrated Sustainability Analysis research group.

Physicist by training, Prof Lenzen has a background in energy systems and especially renewable energy sources. After emigrating from Germany to Australia in 1995, he took up a postdoctoral position at the University of Sydney in order to work on the vacuum glazing project. In 2001, he and his colleague Christopher Dey founded ISA, a centre for developing leading-edge research and applications for environmental and broader sustainability issues, bringing together expertise in environmental science, economics, technology, and social science. Since then, ISA has been prominent in the media.

Prof Lenzen has led numerous projects providing advice to all levels of government and also numerous businesses. For example, he was commissioned by the Australia Federal Government to undertake research on a first-ever Triple Bottom Line assessment of the Australian economy, and on the life-cycle energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of nuclear power. Further, he has created a popular online Environmental Atlas.

Prof Lenzen has (co-)authored more than 100 articles in the international peer-reviewed literature. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the ISI-listed journal Economic Systems Resesarch.
