Maurizio GARGIULO graduates in Environmental Engineering in 2001 from the Polytechnic of Turin (Italy) and took a Master in Industrial Safety and Risk Analysis in 2003.

Since 2001 he has been collaborating with an Italian company (RAMS&E – Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety and Environment) on activities concerning industrial safety and reliability and power plants environmental impact.

Since 2002 he has been collaborating with the Polytechnic University of Turin, the Italian Association of Energy Economist (AIEE) and Energy Foundation on national and international research projects in the field of energy environmental planning and modelling. In the same period he followed the development of the multi-regional Italian electricity model with TIMES in collaboration with the Italian electricity research centre (CESI RICERCA) and some Italian Local models with TIMES in collaboration with Foundation ENI Enrico Mattei (FEEM).

Presently, he is involved in some EC funded research projects: the FP6 Integrated Project “NEEDS” (UK-TIMES model and Pan European Model), the RES2020 Project (Pan European TIMES) and the European Fusion Development Agreement (ETM-TIMES model).

More recently he cooperates to two important EC projects: the FP7-“Energy for Risk of Energy Availability: Common Corridors for Europe Supply Security” (REACCESS project) and “Research, methodologies and technologies for the effective development of pan-European key GRID infrastructures to support the achievement of a reliable, competitive and sustainable electricity supply” (REALISEGRID project).

Outside Europe he is giving consultancy to the International Research Group (IRG, Washington DC) on the following projects: Development and Supply of a Domestic Energy Model for Saudi Arabia with TIMES, for ARAMCO, and Development and Supply of a Domestic Energy Model for Pakistan, for the Asian Development Bank.

In Italy he is developing in collaboration with the Italian research centre (Ente per le Nuove Tecnologie l’Energia e l’Ambiente – ENEA) and CESI RICERCA the multi-regional Italian TIMES model.

Eng. Gargiulo participates actively to the activities of the Implementing Agreement for a Program of Energy Technology Systems Analysis of the International Energy Agency (IEA-ETSAP): he is holding courses on the VEDA-TIMES tool, and is drafting the second version of the VEDA-TIMES Getting Started manual.
