Darryl Dickerhoff is a Principal Research Associate at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and has studied energy use in building since 1980. His emphasis has been in developing measurement techniques related to air flow including: infiltration, ventilation and air leakage of the envelope and thermal distribution systems of both residential and commercial buildings. He is a collaborator with UC Berkeley’s Center for the Built Environment, CBE, where he researches issues related to underfloor ventilation systems. He has extensive experience in field measurements of the energy use in buildings. He is an expert in the use of tracer gases and has developed one of the few multiple tracer gas systems.
2018 Director’s Award for Exceptional Achievement: Technology Transfer - August 08th 2018
A Living Lab partnership with Goldman Sachs (GS) leveraged LBNL's world-class science to obtain an objective assessment of innovative daylighting and lighting energy efficiency technologies and promote lessons learned strategies throughout the worldwide GS organization and the broader buildings industry.
2014 ASHRAE Award for Technical Paper - June 28th 2014

Building America's Housing Innovation Award - October 04th 2013
The U.S. Department of Energy recognized Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the area of advanced technologies and practices for research on high-efficiency furnace blowers. The project team consisted of Iain Walker, Darryl Dickerhoff and Jim Lutz of the Environmental Energy Technologies Division. Their work is credited with leading to the incorporation of energy-efficient blowers in U.S. energy efficiency programs and building codes, and the creation of a Canadian standard for rating air system blowers.
