Biography

Professor Tony Day is Executive Director of the International Energy Research Centre (IERC), a partnership between the Irish Government, multi-national corporations, and local companies and SMEs. The IERC delivers industry led research into integrated demand side energy solutions, with the emphasis on outcomes leading to new commercial opportunities and business models. Prior to joining the IERC Tony was Energy Services Director at TEAM, a leading energy management software provider. Before that he was Professor of Energy in the Built Environment at London South Bank University, where he set up the Centre for Efficient and Renewable Energy in Buildings, and conducted a range of research and enterprise projects.

Tony specialises in building energy analysis and the application of low and zero carbon technologies in the urban environment. His research includes analysis of energy policy and performance of low carbon technologies, and he has extensive knowledge transfer activities with industry. Tony is a Chartered Engineer, Fellow of the Energy Institute and CIBSE, and past Chair of the UK Solar Energy Society.
