Innovation Division Manager, Energy Services & Sustainability
Federico Noris is a civil (environmental) engineer with 10 years of experience investigating and deploying a variety of engineering solutions primarily to increase building performances. He holds Bachelor and Master Degrees from the Politecnico di Milano in Environmental Engineering. At the end of both study cycles, he went to The University of Texas at Austin to investigate air-pollution treatment solutions. He was then offered to pursue a Doctoral Degree in Civil (Environmental) Engineering at The University of Texas with a focus on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and energy implications of it. After being awarded with the PhD in 2010 he spent more than 2 years as Post-Doctoral Mechanical Engineer fellow at Lawrence Berkley National Lab (LBNL) developing solutions for apartment retrofits that simultaneously improve energy performance and Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ); he was awarded the SPOT Employee Recognition Award. Subsequently, he became Senior Researcher in the Institute for Renewable Energy at EURAC where he was responsible for planning, supervision and execution of research & innovation activities (at EU, regional level and for private clients) related to energy and IEQ building performance with a focus on M&V, building control strategies and optimization, commercial building retrofitting, nZEBs and building flexibility. He was the reference point in the group for the activities involving building monitoring for energy and IEQ (comfort and IAQ) including supervision of collaborators, and aspects related to ventilation systems and equipment.
