Dr. Michael Stadler is a Staff Scientist at Berkeley Lab, California and is leading the Grid Integration Group. He studied at Vienna University of Technology, from which he holds a Master’s degree in electrical engineering and a Ph.D. with honors in energy economics. He is a recipient of the PECASE Award of the White House. The Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers. Michael also leads the microgrid team and distributed energy resources team at Berkeley Lab and is the lead developer of DER-CAM. He is also the CTO and founder of the Center for Energy and innovative Technologies (CET) in Austria. He leads a team of more than 40 researchers and students in the USA, China, and Europe. He is also a reviewer for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), ASHRAE, Applied Energy, Elsevier, European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ECEEE), European Transactions on Electrical Power, International Journal of Electronic Business Management, as well as Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Michael has published more than 200 papers, journal papers, reports, as well as five software tools in his 15 year career to date.
