Dr. Lea Diestelmeier
Dr. Lea Diestelmeier works as Assistant Professor at the Groningen Center of Energy Law and Sustainability, University of Groningen. Her research focuses on EU energy law and in particular electricity sector regulation and decentral solutions for the energy transition. This includes, for example, the changing role of energy consumers and the stake of citizens in the energy sector, and alternative communal organisations participating in activities related to energy, i.e. ‘energy communities’. Beyond the implementation and operation of new technologies, Lea is interested in how energy law can facilitate democratization and justice. Lea obtained her PhD in 2019 at the University of Groningen.
