Anna Cybulsky, M.Sc. M.Eng.

Head of Energy System Integration

Visionary strategist in energy system integration, effectively communicating modelling solutions from the big-picture to sector-wide insights.

Anna is the Head of Energy System Integration at ESMIA, where she leads the development of new applications for the NATEM energy system optimization model and enhances the end-to-end modelling process from data preparation to output visualization. She explores new business opportunities to use energy systems models in innovative ways as well as machine learning techniques to support the private sector in market assessment, techno-economic trades, and analysis of policy impact on future business. She manages large scale projects ensuring the quality of final deliverables for clients such as executive presentations, technical reports, and public-facing briefings. Her expertise includes modelling the integration of hydrogen and power sectors to optimize capacity expansion and dispatch under stringent emissions constraints, and she provides strategic advice on hydrogen utilization for decarbonization and relevant policy impacts.

Anna is deeply invested in clean energy, climate technology, and entrepreneurship, particularly in transforming the transportation sector. With five years of international experience in simulation and modelling across the automotive, aviation, and energy industries, she adapts quickly, and brings an entrepreneurial mindset to solving complex problems.

Before joining ESMIA, Anna began her career in the automotive sector in Germany and India, where she implemented safety processes and developed new methods for evaluating vehicle braking system performance through data. Afterwards, she joined Airbus in France, where she led electrical system modelling activities for flight simulators and developed a multi-system integrated simulation to evaluate new aircraft architectures.

Anna holds a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering from McGill University (Canada) and a master’s in engineering and management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). Her research concentrated on techno-economic modelling and optimization of hydrogen supply chain for aviation demand under different technology scenarios.
