NREL employees honored by industry associations
Date:2/27/2013

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE)'s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and its employees have garnered new awards and recognition from industry groups for advancing energy efficiency and renewable energy research.

NREL Engineer Named New Face of Engineering

NREL Engineer Ian Metzger has been named by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) as its New Face of Engineering. The program, part of National Engineers Week, and co-sponsored by ASHRAE, promotes the accomplishments of young engineers by highlighting their engineering contributions and the resulting impact on public welfare.

Metzger is dedicated to increasing the speed and scale of energy efficiency and renewable energy deployment. He's served as a lead energy auditor - conducting assessments of 30 facilities over the last three years in the United States and internationally. He also has trained more than 200 people in the United States and abroad on how to be an energy auditor. He is a principal investigator at NREL for new and emerging technology demonstration. Metzger has also provided commissioning oversight for two NREL high performance buildings the Research Support Facility and the Energy Systems Integration Facility.

"I am proud and excited to represent young engineers as a New Face of Engineering," Metzger said. "I am excited for the opportunity to encourage future generations of engineers to tackle some of the challenges in advancing and deploying energy efficient and renewable energy technologies."

RSF Garners Top Industry Award

NREL's net-zero, 360,000 sq. ft., Research Support Facility (RSF) in Golden, Colo., also was honored recently by ASHRAE. The RSF is changing the commercial office building landscape by using 50% less energy than if it were built to current commercial code while being built at a competitive cost for new construction.
