Duncan is an Irish Research Council employment-based scholar working with ElectroRoute, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, to model the roles hydrogen and its derivatives can play in the decarbonisation of energy systems. His work uses PLEXOS simulation software to model the deployment of hydrogen as an energy vector in Paris-Agreement-aligned energy system pathways.


Duncan holds a BSc in Mechanical Engineering and an ME in Energy Systems Engineering, both from University College Dublin. As a part of his ME, Duncan undertook an internship with ElectroRoute, who he continued to work with as an Energy Analyst upon completion of his placement.
