Award Recipient(s) 

Mark Levine

Accomplishment 

Since starting his career at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 1978, Mark Levine has been the key driving force behind the development of the Lab's world-class energy efficiency analysis activities. LBNL's energy analysis program was the world's first significant program focused on energy efficiency analysis with a broad scope. The program pioneered a new field of research and associated analysis methods now used around the world.
These energy efficiency research and analysis efforts have had large positive societal impacts by improving energy efficiency, reducing energy use, reducing costs paid by consumers for energy services, reducing local pollutants emitted by burning most energy resources, and mitigating emissions that cause climate change.
