Evan Mills is a retired Senior Scientist in the Building Technology and Urban Systems Division, and has worked in the energy efficiency field since 1982. He previously led the Center for Building Science at LBNL. His core commercial-buildings expertise is in energy benchmarking, commissioning, high-tech buildings, risk management, and the efficiency business case. He is a frequent speaker to academic and industry audiences on buildings energy efficiency, author of over 300 publications, and member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. He is a recipient of an R&D 100 award for commercializing Home Energy Saver software in 2009. Mills holds a MS degree in Energy and Resources from U.C. Berkeley and a Ph.D. in Environmental and Energy Systems Studies from Lund University in Sweden.
