Anthony Fontanini

Research Activity per Year


Personal Profile

Anthony joined NREL in 2018. His research is focused on software development and timeseries validation of physics-based building stock energy models. He led the development of a Los Angeles residential stock model for the “LA100: The Los Angeles 100% Renewable Energy” project and was the calibration and validation lead for the “End-Use Load Profiles for the U.S. Building Stock” project. The result of his research helps provide validated national-scale building stock tools. These tools are used to quantify energy savings for residential efficiency and electrification measures and produce future scenarios for utility-scale load forecasting.

Professional Experience

Prior to working at NREL, Anthony was a member of technical staff at Fraunhofer CSE where he executed demonstrations of new technologies in the building envelope and developed attic and roof simulation tools. His background is in modeling heat transfer, fluid mechanics, contaminant transport, uncertainty quantification, and high-performance computing.
