Andrew Shore is a mechanical engineer in the Heat Transfer and Alternative Energy Systems Group (HTAES) within the Building Energy and Environment Division of the Engineering Laboratories (EL). He joined the HTAES group in 2020. Andrew is currently focused on research in the PV Characterization Lab as well as supporting projects at the Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility (NZERTF). His work in the PV Characterization Lab includes indoor light energy harvesting, aging studies of PV Modules, and thermal and angular effects on solar reference cells.
Andrew was a co-operative intern with the HTAES group while obtaining his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. At NIST he helped to successfully develop a linearity test method for PV cells as well as stability analysis of a Heat Flow Meter Apparatus. After graduation, he worked as an Energy Efficiency Consultant in support of the Department of Energy's energy efficiency standards and test procedures for appliances for two years. He then became an Energy Engineer Consultant evaluating feasibility of new construction and retrofit projects for Baltimore Gas & Electric's and Pepco Electric Power's commercial & industrial energy savings programs.
