Dr. Bo Shen is a Energy/Environmental Policy Research Scientist/Engineer in the China Group of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His current work at LBNL involves extensive collaboration with Chinese partners on improving China’s energy use through the design of enabling policies, reduction of industrial energy intensity, and the implementation of demand-side management programs. Dr. Shen has over 18 years of experience working in the energy field. Prior to joining LBNL, Dr. Shen led the China Energy Efficiency and Demand-Side management Project at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) where he worked with partners in China in building capacity and providing policy support in facilitating greater energy efficiency improvement at the national level and designing and implementing DSM programs at the provincial level. From 1999-2007, Dr. Shen worked as a Senior Public Utilities Analyst for the State Government in Delaware on a broad range of regulatory issues including electricity restructuring, retail competition, wholesale power market development, integrated resource planning, energy efficiency, demand response, renewable energy, and distributed generation. Dr. Shen had also worked as a policy specialist primarily in the area of regional planning and energy management for 4 years at the Chinese Academy of Sciences before he moved to the U.S. to pursue his graduate study. Dr. Shen has a Ph.D. in energy and environmental policy, an MBA in finance, and a M.S. focusing on environmental policy, all from the U.S. and a B.A. in mechanical engineering from Peking University.
