The chair holder will promote the Energy Efficiency Center’s mission to accelerate the commercialization of energy efficiency technologies, teach future leaders in energy efficiency, and conduct critical policy-supporting research.
“UC Davis research has substantially contributed to better solutions for energy efficiency, and I am pleased to support future work at the Energy Efficiency Center,” said WattStopper president Jerry Mix.
UC Davis chancellor Linda Katehi said the Rosenfeld Chair in Energy Efficiency will be a natural fit with the university’s broad commitment to sustainability leadership. “Our goal is to make this a sustainable second century for our campus while we continue our leadership in energy research and innovation, and the all-important step of commercialization,” Katehi said. “Dr. Rosenfeld’s work is an inspiration to us, and serves as an example of the transformative effect that is possible when science and public policy are linked.”
