Jonathan G. Koomey, former leader of the End-Use Forecasting Group, is a project scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He held the MAP/Ming visiting professorship in energy and environment at Stanford University for the 2003-2004 school year and is now a consulting professor at Stanford. Koomey holds M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California at Berkeley, and an A.B. (Cum Laude) in History of Science from Harvard University. He is the author or co-author of eight books and more than one hundred fifty articles and reports on energy efficiency, climate change, and environmental policy.
