Biography

Michael Rosenberg joined PNNL in 2008 as a Senior Research Scientist. He leads PNNL's commercial energy code development team providing technical analysis and support for cost-effective upgrades to national model energy codes and standards including ASHRAE Standard 90.1. Mike has worked for over 20 years upgrading building energy codes, providing training to code officials and design professionals, designing high-performance buildings, analyzing complex building systems, and developing and administering beyond-code energy programs.

He has combined his expertise in code development and building simulation to become a leader in the effort to transition energy codes to a performance basis. In 2016, he was elected a Fellow of ASHRAE based on his substantial contributions to the field of building energy efficiency.
