Expert assessments on the future of DC in buildings

Brock Glasgo

Carnegie Mellon University

Brock Glasgo is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. His research with the Climate and Energy Decision Making Center is in developing methods and applications where device-level residential energy use data can be used to inform policy and investment decision-making. Prior to coming to CMU, he worked as a consultant applying data mining tools to develop energy management plans for industrial facilities under utility- and state-sponsored energy efficiency programs. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Dayton.


Recent research on direct current circuits and devices has largely concluded that these systems have the potential to generate modest energy and cost savings in residential and commercial buildings by centralizing and reducing... [ view full abstract ]
