Long biography

Arild Gustavsen is director of The Research Centre on Zero Emission Buildings (ZEB) and professor in building physics at Department of Architectural Design, History and Technology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). He performed teaching and research in building physics and energy efficiency until 2012, mostly research from 2013. Research interests include heat, air and moisture transfer in building envelope systems, application of new materials in building assemblies, and energy use in new and existing buildings.

The Research Centre on Zero Emission Buildings (www.zeb.no) is a Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME), funded by the The Research Council of Norway and 25 partners. The vision of the centre is to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions caused by buildings. Research is carried out within 5 main areas: Advanced materials technologies, Climate-adapted low-energy envelope technologies, Energy supply systems and services, Energy efficient use and operation, and Concepts and strategies for zero emission buildings

Arild Gustavsen is also project manager of the project "Window Technologies for Energy Efficient Buildings", where The Windows and Daylighting Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is one of the partners.

He is also task leader in the EU project "Energy Efficiency for EU Historic Districts Sustainability" (EFFESUS - www.effesus.eu).
