Dave is currently working at the National Renewable Energy
Laboratory leading strategic planning and institutional
investments and development. Dave recently moved to this role
from the Strategic Energy Analysis Center, where he was the
Center Director for the largest energy analysis organization in the
DOE national lab complex. Prior to his role leading NREL’s energy
analysis organization, Dave was the Laboratory Program Manager
for Solar Technologies, where he was responsible for managing and coordinating NREL’s
$70M solar R&D portfolio. While at NREL, Dave also led efforts to identify and address
technical issues associated with the large-scale deployment and integration of
renewable and efficiency technologies into the existing energy infrastructure. In this
role, he led 180 researchers conducting $100M in R&D annually. Dave has testified as an

From 2007 to 2008 he was assigned by NREL to support the DOE’s office of the Assistant

analysis of EERE’s technology portfolio to quantify energy, environmental, and economic
benefits and served as technical counsel to the Deputy Assistant Secretaries. Dave has
also worked as the director of business development for a U.S. PV company where he
was responsible for launching manufacturing and systems businesses, business
