The BTJRC is pleased to host research scholars from the United States and China to conduct research projects at Berkeley Lab that support China's climate change mitigation goals.
Wei Feng is a Sr. Scientific Engineering Associate in Berkeley Lab's China Energy Group. His research focuses on building energy efficiency, building energy simulation, distributed energy system in buildings and communities, building codes and standards.
David Fridley is a staff scientist in Berkeley Lab's China Energy Group where his research involves extensive collaboration with the Chinese on end-use energy efficiency, industrial energy use, government energy management programs, data compilation and analysis, medium and long term energy policy research.
Jeffery Greenblatt is a Staff Scientist with Berkeley Lab's Sustainable Energy System (SES) Group, where he has been involved with modeling pathways for California's low-carbon energy future since 2009. Jeff also works on the life-cycle assessment of emerging technologies including artificial photosynthesis (sponsored by DOE's Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis) and autonomous vehicles, and is involved with both DOE's Quadrennial Technology Review and Quadrennial Energy Review efforts. He has almost 15 years of experience in climate change and low-carbon energy technology assessment and modeling.
Dr. Junling Huang directs UC Berkeley's BECI-China Project, which seeks to address China’s energy and climate challenges by bringing science and technology into the design of public policy. His research interests include China’s energy and climate policy, China’s science and technology policy, and China’s governance.
Nina Zheng Khanna is a Scientific Engineering Associate in Berkeley Lab's China Energy Group. Since 2007, she has been working on China's appliance efficiency standards and labeling programs, building energy efficiency, bottom-up energy end-use modeling, low carbon cities development, and energy supply and energy policy analysis.
AngeLa (Xu) Liu
Angela (Xu) Liu is a senior research associate in Berkeley Lab's China Energy Group. Her recent research focuses on energy efficiency improvement and low carbon development in China. Prior to joining Berkeley Lab, Angela worked at Resources for the Future as a research assistant in Washington DC, where she assessed the design of three carbon trading pilots in China.
David Roland-Holst is adjunct professor of agricultural and resource economics in the College of Natural Resources at the University of California, Berkeley. He is an expert on the Chinese economy, international development, and environmental economics.
Dr. Bo Shen is a Energy/Environmental Policy Research Scientist/Engineer in Berkeley Lab's China Group. His current work involves extensive collaboration with Chinese partners on improving China’s energy use through the design of enabling policies, reduction of industrial energy intensity, and the implementation of demand-side management programs.
Max Wei is a Program Manager in the Energy Analysis and Environmental Impacts Division at Berkeley Lab. Max has expertise in the areas of techno-economic analysis and life-cycle cost analysis of existing and emerging technology applications; manufacturing cost analysis and total cost of ownership modeling of existing and emerging energy technologies; and modeling future energy systems and scenarios.
Jingjing Zhang is a Postdoctoral Fellow with Berkeley Lab's China Energy Group. Her current work involves topics of urban sustainability transition and future low-emission pathways, as well as long-term energy-water nexus assessment and policy work.
Nan Zhou is a Staff Scientist and the Group Leader of Berkeley Lab's China Energy Group. Dr. Zhou is also the Director of the U.S.-China Clean Energy Center-Building Energy Efficiency (CERC-BEE). Dr. Zhou’s work assists the Chinese government in connecting high level policy goals—energy security, economic growth, equity, etc.—with changes in energy investment, supply, and efficiency.
