This Friday, 11/5, Fraunhofer USA Center for Manufacturing Innovation's Dr. Kurt Roth will speak in “ISE Energy of the Future Webinar Series” hosted by the BU Institute for Sustainable Energy. The webinar will address the technical, financial, and policy challenges in decarbonization of existing commercial buildings, with Dr. Roth’s talk focusing on space heating for small- and medium-size buildings.
Dr. Kurt Roth, a Senior Fellow at the Boston University Institute for Sustainable Energy, leads Energy Systems applied R&D at Fraunhofer USA. The team collaborates with industry on applied research to develop, analyze, test, demonstrate, and evaluate building technologies and technologies that enable integration of large quantities of renewable power with the electric grid.
Kurt has served as a co-PI on several DOE projects to develop and demonstrate innovative building technologies, including integration with solar PV and energy storage. Dr. Roth has also led several studies to assess the energy savings and commercialization potentials of building technologies, including HVAC, building controls and diagnostics, and information technologies (IT), as well as studies to characterize building energy consumption by different end uses. He has presented at numerous conferences and meetings and authored more than sixty ASHRAE Journal “Emerging Technology” articles.
