Principal Scientific Engineering Associate, China Energy Group, US Dept. of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Bo Shen has a Ph.D in Energy and Environmental Policy from CEEP and is currently a Principal Scientific Engineering Associate in the China Energy Group at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). His current work involves extensive collaboration with international and Chinese partners in identifying innovative policy solutions and market mechanisms aimed at improving China’s energy intensity and reducing green house gases emissions through industrial energy efficiency and demand-side management programs. He is also working on a project to help China’s Suzhou city launch the country’s first manufacturing label, which will rate industrial facilities on energy and carbon performance. Bo believes that by creating enabling policies and innovative strategies to transform the market, we can improve the energy use in our homes and businesses, and reduce harmful emissions that threaten the climate and local environment.
