Keynote Speaker – Stephen Selkowitz
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Department Head, Building Technologies, Environmental Energy Technologies Division,
Stephen Selkowitz manages a building science R&D program encompassing Windows and Daylighting, Lighting Systems, Simulation R&D, Commercial Building Performance, Demand Response Research and High Tech Buildings. Selkowitz has over 30 years of experience in building energy performance and sustainable design, with an emphasis on RD&D of energy efficient technologies, systems and design practices. Projects range from basic materials research for glazing and daylighting, development of energy simulation tools for integrated building design and operations, and from near term demonstrations of emerging technologies to research for “net zero energy” buildings. The program balances R&D with an aggressive technology transfer effort so that research results are effectively adopted by the building industry. Selkowitz is a frequent invited speaker on building energy efficiency, and author of over 170 publications and holds 2 patents.
Dr Selkowitz is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) of the Smart Lighting Center which consists of distinguished and accomplished group of researchers providing input and guidance on the scientific merit of research projects and direction of the center.
