    Buildings, Energy, and the Future: Lessons from the DOE Building Technologies Office

    This presentation will discuss Dr. Phelan's recent 4-year stint as the Manager of the Emerging Technologies Program at the US Department of Energy, Building Technologies Office.  This is the applied research & development effort for buildings, and includes HVAC, refrigeration, the building envelope, sensors & controls, solid-state lighting, and building energy modeling.  Current efforts and priorities will be discussed, as well as a scoping study on “Buildings of the Future.”

    Dr. Patrick Phelan received his BS degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, his MS degree from MIT, and his PhD from UC Berkeley, all in mechanical engineering.  Following a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, he started his academic career as an Assistant Professor at the University of Hawaii in 1992.  In 1996 he moved to Arizona State University (ASU), where he is a Professor of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, and a Senior Sustainability Scientist.  While on leave from ASU he served as the Director of the NSF Thermal Transport Processes Program from 2006 to 2008.
