Player description

Nathan Johnson talks about his work in designing energy technologies and energy systems with respect to dynamic social, economic and environmental factors. His global project experience demonstrates what concepts engineers can consider in the design process.

Dr. Nathan Johnson is an active researcher and teacher of sustainability, multi-disciplinary design and energy systems modeling an optimization. Through his work Dr. Johnson confronts global energy challenges by evaluating energy options against the technical human and environmental factors internet to real-world problems. His work combines experimental design with model-based systems engineering to develop decision-making tools that support the sustainable products and services around the world. These tools are primarily used in the design of micro-grid systems and building energy systems.
