Daniel Sanchez Carretero is a PhD student at the Civil and Environmental Engineering department. Before joining the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy, he conducted regression analysis on public and private funding towards energy investments in different US states. His research interests include energy technology and modelling, data science and energy economics. During his time at CEEP he has worked on energy consumption modelling in buildings as well as analysis of potential energy savings through energy conservation measures. His dissertation seeks to study the influence of metallic photocatalysts in the sustainable conversion of atmospheric carbon dioxide to useful chemicals. His work has been published in journals like Nature Geoscience, Ecohydrology, Journal of Hazardous Materials and Chemical Engineering Journal. One of the publications that best exemplifies his work at CEEP is “Risk Mitigation in Energy Efficiency Retrofit Projects Using Automated Monitoring and Verification Techniques”. Daniel holds a Physics degree and Economics minor from the University of West Georgia.
