Hommel & Graf Environmental is organised as a collaborative alliance of associated researchers and engineers, operating from our head office in Hamburg, Germany. Founded in 2013 by Dr. René Hommel, in the first years the company focussed on the development of micrositing models for renewable energy projects. Later the service portfolio has been expanded and covered a wide range of atmospheric environmental modeling. In 2014 we started developing general purpose meteorological models that are seamlessly integrable into CAE systems (CFD/FEM).
In 2016 we advanced our mission in addressing challenging problems concomitant with climate change and prospects of progressing urbanisation. We have teamed up with Prof. em. Dr. Sc. Hans-F. Graf, a leading climate researcher, and meteorologist, who held the Chair on Environmental Systems Analysis at the Cambridge University (UK) until his retirement in December 2015. He is continuing research as a Visiting Scientist of the Chinese Academy of Science since 2016, where he mainly works at the Centre for Monsoon Studies in Beijing. Prof. Graf has published more than 180 scientific articles, chapters, and reports on various fields in Environmental and Climate science (publications list). He worked as PI in a large number of national and international research projects and is a consultant at the Institute for Atmospheric Physics of the CAS in Beijing, member of the Scientific Advisory Board of MeteoBlue, Basel, and gives regularly advise to the City University Hongkong and the Finish Academy of Sciences. Prof. Graf's expertise covers all scales of the climate system, from microphysics of clouds to global circulation. Recently, he is actively studying climatic anomalies related to EL Niño, local to regional extremes related to future climate and the links between Asian Monsoon and global weather anomalies.
Our associates have a long track record in project management and have a broad experience in climate science, meteorology, geoscience, and numerical fluid dynamics. Depending on our customer's needs we tailor our services and establish skilled and experienced teams to execute development plans.
