Zheng Yang is a senior research scientist at Engie, and a staff researcher at Stanford University. Dr. Yang’s research focuses on urban data integration and management, district heating and cooling, coupled urban system dynamics, energy simulation and calibration, building performance contracting, building energy efficiency benchmarking, data-driven energy policy recommendation, and human-building interactions. Dr. Yang received a Ph.D degree in Civil Engineering with specialization on Informatics for Intelligent Built Environment from University of Southern California, and completed his postdoctoral research in Urban Informatics Lab at Stanford University. Dr. Yang has led and participated in several U.S. National Science Foundation and Department of Energy funded research projects to develop data-driven solutions to energy and sustainability challenges facing urban built environment.
We provide U.S. policymakers and the U.S. Department of Energy with the latest data, technology, policy and strategic insights related to energy use in China. A key goal is to develop a level, competitive playing field for U.S. products, technologies and companies in China through training, technology and testing standards and program implementation. We also help U.S. companies understand, identify and expand target markets in China.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is an expert on energy use in China and a catalytic actor in providing data to U.S. policymakers about China, its energy use and opportunities for U.S. industry to do business in China. Berkeley Lab's China Energy Group work advances U.S. national security and economic prosperity, demonstrates American generosity, and promotes a path to recipient self-reliance and resilience.
