Roger Sathre is a Research Scientist with the Energy Technologies Area of the Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). His research interests
Roger's educational background includes:
- life-cycle environmental analysis of energy, industrial and forestry systems
- scenario-based prospective system modeling of emerging energy technologies
- energy and climate implications of forest management and forest product use
- temporally- and spatially-explicit modeling of climate change mitigation strategies.
His professional experience includes over a decade of refugee relief program management in African countries including Angola, Sudan and Mozambique, where he was responsible for the design, operation, evaluation and reporting of emergency humanitarian efforts.
Roger is also Program Director at the LBNL Institute for Globally Transformative Technologies (LIGTT). This Lab-wide initiative seeks to identify the most critical human development problems that technology can address, leverage LBNL's scientific and engineering expertise to create demand-driven solutions, and develop practical implementation models to enable large-scale change.
He is a member of LBNL's Emerging Technology Assessment (ETA) Team. This interdisciplinary team conducts prospective life-cycle modeling of the energy, environmental and economic implications of large-scale deployment of emerging energy technologies, providing feedback to guide basic research and accelerate innovation.
He is affiliated with the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP), a US DOE Energy Innovation Hub dedicated to the development of artificial solar-fuel generation technology. At JCAP, Roger conducts prospective analysis of eventual large-scale renewable fuel production systems, focusing on net energy performance.
Roger is also Adjunct Professor in the Department of Building and Energy Technology at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden. He works with the Sustainable Built Environment research group, where he conducts life-cycle system analysis of forestry, bioenergy and the built environment.
