Biography

Art Rosenfeld is often referred to as the "Godfather" of energy efficiency. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Chicago under Nobel Laureate Enrico Fermi, before joining the University of California at Berkeley. While there, he helped form the experimental particle physics group of Luis W. Alvarez, led the group after Alvarez received the Nobel Prize, and switched to astrophysics. He also founded the International Particle Data Group. In 1974, responding to the OPEC oil embargo and the first U.S. energy crisis, he started the internationally renowned Center for Building Science at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Dr. Rosenfeld has held numerous positions at both the federal and state level, including being appointed twice (by two governors) as Commissioner of the California Energy Commission, a position he currently holds. He has authored nearly 400 refereed publications and received the prestigious Enrico Fermi Award in 2006.
