Biography

Ms. Kathleen Judd joined PNNL in 2000 and works with government and private organizations to define and achieve their organizational- and building-level sustainability goals. She became the Technical Group Manager of the Building Energy Systems Group on Dec. 1, 2016, and is a direct technical contributor to the group's applied research.

Ms. Judd has led the development of site-level climate vulnerability assessments for the U.S. Department of Energy and action plans to make federal campuses more resilient to climate change impacts. She leads assessments of existing building performance against federal energy and sustainability goals, and is helping to define more efficient methods for building performance evaluation at the site, building, and laboratory level. In addition to identifying technology solutions, she emphasizes the role of institutional policies and individual behavior in creating more sustainable organizations.

Ms. Judd is strong believer in walking-the-talk, and works to put PNNL's energy and sustainability research and technology into practice on the PNNL campus. She helped to establish PNNL's internal sustainability program, engages with PNNL leadership to set strategy, leads PNNL's sustainability performance assessment and reporting, and supports various efforts to foster conservation behavior among employees.
