Dr. Marco Molinari is researcher at the Department of Energy Technology, at KTH. He earned his M.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering, Padua University, in 2006. His thesis, developed within the Erasmus program at the Fraunhofer Institut für Bauphysik, Kassel, dealt with energy efficiency and management in buildings. He received his PhD in 2012 with a thesis focused on the use of exergy and parametric analysis in the built environment at the Division of Building Technology, KTH, and from 2013 until the end of 2016 he has been postdoc and researcher at the ACCESS Linnaeus Centre, KTH Department of Automatic Control.
He actively participated in three international research projects and has been a main contributor to the International Energy Agency ECBCS Annex 49 final guidebook, “Detailed Exergy Assessment Guidebook for the Built Environment”. He is author of several scientific articles and is in the editorial board of International Review of Applied Sciences and Engineering. He has been supervisor of several theses in the field of low energy buildings design, energy management and conservation in the built environment and in buildings’ controls.
His research interests focus on smart buildings and on the integration of Information and Communication Technologies in the built environment, including energy monitoring and deployment of advanced control approaches, as well as on passive techniques and integrated design for low energy buildings.
