Associate Researcher, Mechanical Engineer

Dr. George Kosmadakis has studied Mechanical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and graduated in 2003.

He holds a M.Sc. from NTUA (2004) on “Energy Production and Management” and after that he pursued his Ph.D. from the same university.

His Thesis concerns the research on hydrogen combustion and emissions in internal combustion engines through the development of a 3D computational fluid dynamics code, which was finalized in 2011.

Since 2006, he has been working as the main researcher in several research projects (FP7, H2020 and national funded) at the Agricultural University of Athens and the National Technical University of Athens, mainly relevant to waste heat recovery applications based on organic Rankine cycle technology, heat pumps, solar energy systems and desalination systems.

He is working at NCSR “Demokritos” as an Adjunct Researcher since 2017 within an industrial project related to high-temperature heat pumps for waste heat recovery.

Since 2019, he is the principal investigator of NCSR “Demokritos” of an EU project related to sustainable energy systems for buildings (H2020-RES4BUILD).

Dr. Kosmadakis has 55 publications in Int. peer-reviewed Journals, 2 Springer book chapters, and 35 conference publications, with an h-index of 21 (Scopus, July 2020, excluding self-citations) and more than 1500 citations in total.

He is also a member of the Editorial Board in six Int. Journals, reviewer in more than 25 peer-review journals, and is acting as a proposal evaluator for various organisations.

Integrated solutions for low-temperature waste heat recovery and exploitation in industrial processes

2017-2021 | Stavros Niarchos Foundation and Psyctotherm company

The project deals with the development of integrated solutions for waste heat exploitation, through upgrading the waste heat with a high-temperature heat pump, and then re-using it. In order to improve flexibility, minimize the rejected heat, and gain an overall control of energy flows, the heat can...
