Paul Mathew is a Staff Scientist and Department Head of Whole Building Systems at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), where he conducts applied research and market transformation activities on energy use in buildings. His current work is focused on integrated building systems, energy epidemiology, benchmarking tools, and energy-related risk analysis for building valuation and resilience. Prior to joining LBNL, he worked at Enron Energy Services and the Center for Building Performance at Carnegie Mellon University. He has authored over 150 technical papers, articles and reports. He received a U.S. presidential award for federal energy efficiency. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture, and a Ph.D. in Building Performance and Diagnostics from Carnegie Mellon University.
2022 R&D 100 Award: The SEED Platform: Decarbonizing Cities Through Robust Data Management - August 22nd 2022
Managing building performance data (such as required by a benchmarking ordinance) can be costly and time consuming for states, local governments and other organizations. A Berkeley Lab team, in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, has developed building energy efficiency data management software called the Standard Energy Efficiency Data Platform (SEED). It is an open-source software application designed to manage building performance data; it helps users combine data from multiple sources, clean and validate it, and generate queries and reports.
