Paul Komor is a Lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, and a Project Director at E SOURCE, a Boulder-based energy research firm. His current research is on renewable energy technologies and policies, and their relationship to electric utility restructuring. He currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in energy policy and technology at CU-Boulder. In 2001 he was awarded the Diebold Foundation for European policy studies, and spent 2001 as a Visiting Academic in the Environmental Policy Group at Imperial College, London.
Prior to joining the University of Colorado faculty, he was a Project Director at the U.S. Congress’ Office of Technology Assessment (OTA), where he worked with both House and Senate Congressional Committees in preparing and evaluating energy legislation. His 1992 report, "Building Energy Efficiency", played a major role in the debates that culminated in the Energy Policy Act of 1992. Prior to joining OTA, he taught at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University. He holds a B.S. from Cornell University, and a M.S. and Ph.D. from Stanford University. He has published numerous refereed articles, reports, and other papers; and in 2004 published a book, Renewable Energy Policy, that compares U.S. and EU experiences with renewable energy policies.
In 2005, Paul was selected as the 2006 MAP/Ming Visiting Professor of Energy and the Environment at Stanford University. Paul spent 6 months at Stanford University in 2006, researching and teaching on renewable energy policy and technology.
