Sustainble Futures Speaker Series: Duncan Callaway of UC Berkeley

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Duncan Callaway of the Energy and Resources Group at UC Berkeley as the next speaker in the spring 2014 Sustainable Futures speaker series. Duncan will speak on Thursday, April 10 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM in Science B room 135 (SciB 135) on the HSU campus. The title of his talk is “Leveraging Large Data Sets and Control to Enable Low Carbon Power Systems.”

Duncan Callaway is an Assistant Professor of Energy and Resources and Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley and a faculty scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. After receiving his PhD from Cornell University, he was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow and held senior engineering positions in the energy industry. Prior to joining the University of California he was a Research Scientist at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His current research interests are in the areas of (i) modeling and control of aggregated electricity loads and storage devices, (ii) spatially distributed energy resources, (iii) environmental impact assessment of energy technologies, and (iv) using information technology to improve building energy efficiency.

Duncan’s work is linked to important innovations associated with concepts such as the ‘smart grid’ and other information technology enabled approaches to deploy clean energy. His talk should be a good one, and we encourage you to attend.
