Senior Scientific Engineering Associate
Won Young Park is a senior scientific engineering associate at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). He has led the technical-economic analyses of TVs/displays, air-conditioners, refrigerating appliances, off-grid appliances, and electric vehicles for international initiatives within the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), including
the Superefficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD),
the Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP), and
the Electric Vehicle Initiative (EVI)
and the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (KCEP).
He participated as a technical lead in the SEAD Global Efficiency Medal competition for TVs/displays and the Global LEAP Off-Grid Awards for TVs and Fans, and the development of the UN Environment led United for Efficiency (U4E) Model Regulation Guidelines for Air Conditioners and Refrigerators which are designed to help developing and emerging economies newly establish or improve their energy-efficiency standards. He also made contributions in providing regional policy analyses on air conditioners and refrigerating appliances, including the standard revision in China, adoption of a seasonal energy-efficiency metric in Brazil and Indonesia, and the establishment of energy-efficiency standards in Rwanda.
Prior to LBNL, he worked with Samsung SDI in South Korea, focusing on digital display technology and the alternate energy business. As a research engineer, he evaluated production data to optimize process ability and collaborated in the development of long-term roadmaps for display technology. He received a Bachelor of Science in Physics from Yonsei University, South Korea, and a Master of Public Policy from UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy.
