Matthew Dahlhausen joined NREL in 2018 after working as a building energy modeler designing net zero energy buildings. His work focuses on bottom-up modeling of the national building stock to evaluate opportunities for buildings to act as a distributed energy resource for the grid, and energy model calibration to better understand how energy models underperform. His main interest is in improving the tools engineers use in building design and retrofits.
