Francis Rubinstein is a retired Staff Scientist within the Building Technology and Urban Systems Division. He led a team whose research focuses on digital lighting controls and energy-efficient buildings. He developed a low-cost building equipment control network (IBECS) that will allow lighting fixtures and other building equipment to be operated and controlled wirelessly from the Internet. He is an internationallyrecognized expert in advanced lighting controls research and has managed several major demonstrations of lighting control systems including the Philip Burton Federal Building for which he was awarded the Vice-Presidential National Performance Award. He was DOE’s lighting expert for the Greening of the White House Initiative under President Clinton in 1993. He is a Fellow of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) and is current Chair of the IESNA Research Committee.
