Szymon Firląg

As Senior Adviser, Szymon Firlag has represented BPIE in Poland since 2015. In this role, he has worked closely with Polish partner organisations to develop an ambitious roadmap to guide the transition towards nearly Zero-Energy Buildings and dramatically reduce both energy consumption and CO2 emissions. In this role he has led the technical analysis and economic assessment of the costs and benefits of renovating the Polish building stock.

Before joining BPIE’s team, Szymon worked on developing efficiency related projects for Polish companies and foundations, including: the National Energy Conservation Agency, the Polish National Energy Conservation Agency and the Energy Conservation Foundation. He was involved in the process of design, construction, and certification of the first passive buildings in Poland.

Szymon graduated from WUT with the PhD title. His thesis was on the topic of energy demand and thermal comfort in passive buildings. He conducted his research at the Passivhaus Institut, Darmstadt where he had the chance to work as the Nowicki Foundation and as a DBU fellow. Thanks to a scholarship from the Center of Advanced Studies WUT he conducted research on dynamic windows control at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He authored numerous papers and books and took part in campaigns prompting low energy buildings in Poland.

Szymon is interested in various aspects of energy efficiency in buildings, including both nZEB and deep renovation. Currently, he is a lecturer at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) in the team of sustainable development.

Beyond energy efficiency buildings, Szymon is passionate about hiking, snorkeling and rock music
