Prof. Matthias Sulzer is the head of the Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research - Buildings and Areas (SCCER-FEEBD) at Empa - an Insitute of the ETH Domain and teaches at ETH Zurich and Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. Matthias Sulzer studied building engineering at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and completed his master's degree at the Universities of New South Wales and Sydney in 1999. He founded Inretis Holding AG with two partners in 2005. In 2018 he merged with poenina holding AG. Today, the listed company with over 1,000 employees is active in the field of energy and building technology as well as building envelopes.
Researchers in the Building Technology & Urban Systems Division (BTUS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory develop data and technologies that increase energy efficiency and improve the health, safety and comfort of building occupants, in the United States and worldwide.
We work closely with industry partners, academics and government officials to achieve these goals, and share our research widely.
We are at the forefront of cutting-edge research that redefines building technology and explores all areas of urban systems.
We have been leaders for decades in developing energy-efficient windows, improving indoor air quality, coming up with new ideas to fix the nation's electricity grid, and so much more.
