Michael Wetter is a Staff Scientist at LBNL. His research includes new generation computing tools for building and district energy design and operation. He did his dissertation at the University of California at Berkeley and at LBNL, where he created the GenOpt optimization program and the BuildOpt building simulation program and where he developed the first building energy optimization technique that provably converges to the optimal building design. He created various software for building energy simulation and optimization, including the Building Controls Virtual Test Bed, the Modelica Buildings library, and the GenOpt optimization program. He has been co-operation agent of IEA EBC Annex 60 and of the IBPSA Project 1. He is a recipient of the Outstanding Young Contributor Award of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA), an IBPSA Fellow, a past president of IBPSA-USA, past Treasurer of IBPSA, a member of the board of directors of IBPSA and of the Modelica North America Users' Group, and a member of ASHRAE.
