AlexAlex Waegel, Center for Environmental Building + Design, University of Pennsylvania

Alex Waegel received his doctorate in Energy and Environmental Policy from the University of Delaware in 2010.  While completing his doctorate, he also served as a Research Associate at the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy, developing a carbon calculator and projection model that tracked emissions from the U.S. passenger vehicle fleet.  Dr. Waegel extrapolated these findings, based on the assumed growth of the vehicle pool, the expected change in driving patterns, economic factors, and technological changes,to project numerous scenarios examining the impacts of policies, incentives, and technologies that could significantly impact emissions from this sector.  The results were documented in three policy reports to the BP Foundation and articles published in peer reviewed journals. Dr. Waegel currently works at the University of Pennsylvania Center for Environmental Building + Design, coordinating research in energy and carbon emissions research at Penn and throughout the Philadelphia region. The research is is based on energy consumption modeling and decision-making heuristics. Additionally, he has been involved in the development of a carbon calculator and energy consumption model for Penn and the development of a project sustainability assessment system called GSAS calibrated for middle eastern countries, such as Qatar.
