Dr. Jim Galvin to Support the Energy and Water Program Area

SERDP and ESTCP are pleased to welcome Dr. James (Jim) Galvin to the Energy and Water team. Dr. Galvin has led and managed information and technology start-up programs totaling more than $50 million for the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy for the past eight years. These programs helped implement innovative energy and information management technologies and practices that have been featured in major news publications, including the Washington Post and the New York Times, for their transformative impact.

On detail from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Dr. Galvin has managed a $7 million budget and led a 50-person, multifunctional team of energy efficiency and renewable energy experts to help Hawaii achieve its clean energy goals. His efforts resulted in many policy and technological implementations that contributed to the state’s energy and sustainability goals.

Dr. Galvin earned his Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech; his M.S. in Operations Research and Systems Analysis from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California; and his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

SERDP and ESTCP are fortunate to have Dr. Galvin on board to help advance energy efficiency and renewable energy technology development and implementation across DoD. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Galvin.

Under SERDP and ESTCP’s new management structure, Dr. John Hall, previously the Sustainable Infrastructure Program Manager, will serve as the Program Manager for Resource Conservation and Climate Change.
