Matt Jungclaus is a Manager with RMI’s buildings practice. He works on the Pathways to Zero Initiative, which focuses on driving the adoption of superefficient and net-zero energy buildings. Matt proves the technical and business case for net-zero energy at the district scale through client-driven work for district-level building developments and through involvement in programs such as the Department of Energy’s Zero Energy District Accelerator. Matt is leading RMI’s work on the Economics of Embodied Carbon. Matt recently led a market and policy analysis for major cities considering a policy that would require building energy upgrades at the point of sale, which could result in substantial building energy use reductions, job growth, and other key benefits. Matt’s past work at RMI includes developing a net-zero energy strategy for the McDonald’s Corporation and delivering integrative design workshops for federal and private sector clients.
