Personal profile

Personal Statement

My main focus is the role that energy systems simulation can play in helping to reduce energy demand, accelerate the take-up of renewable energy technologies, mitigate environmental impacts and improve human well-being. A major aspect of my work involves the development and dissemination of software tools for energy systems simulation, and support for the application of these tools in design, research, teaching and policy-making contexts. I am the progenitor of the ESP-r building simulation program, which is deployed worldwide, and founder member and past President of the International Building Performance Simulation Association, which promotes the technology worldwide.
