Systems, Buildings & Energy Efficiency
ERI researchers investigate design and implementation of passive and active building systems including geothermal heat pumps, insulated structural panels, thermal battery storage and rooftop solar photovoltaic panels. Additionally researchers are developing novel non-invasive monitoring techniques and control systems for multi-source applications.

In the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Dr. Hongwei Gao develops power converters for solid oxide fuel cell systems. These DC-to-AC converters condition the power produced by fuel cells. Dr. Gao has developed soft-switched converters for residential fuel cell power systems and is working on modular inverters for large-scale fuel cell systems. Dr. Gao can be reached at 406-994-5973 or at email@example.com. Website: www.coe.montana.edu/ee/hgao/
