Sofia Stensson has been working at SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden since 2007, at the Building Service Engineering department. The department focuses on efficient energy use from a system perspective in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. They actively participate in the innovation process in corporation with industries and universities by working with applied research, development, technical evaluation and quality assurance, from a component to a system perspective. Sofia is a group manager for the Sustainable Energy Systems group. She has a Master’s of Science degree in Industrial Engineering and Management. Currently she is finalizing her PhD studies at Chalmers University of Technology at the Division of Building Service Engineering, where she also received a licentiate degree in 2010. Her research interests fall mainly in the field of energy efficiency of buildings, HVAC systems, energy auditing, and building simulations. She has special interest in working with complex buildings, which is why she chose to write her PhD thesis on energy efficiency in shopping malls. The thesis describes energy use and analyses energy efficiency opportunities in Swedish shopping malls. Furthermore, it analysis if current regulatory requirements are effective in enhancing energy efficiency measures. Sofia is currently looking for an opportunity to start collaborations between SP and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
