Dr. Kuljeet S. Grewal is currently working as Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering, University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI). Before joining UPEI he worked as an Instructor and Postdoctoral Researcher at the School of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape (SAPL),
University of Calgary from 2018 to 2021. Dr. Grewal graduated from Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology (TIET), India (B.Eng. Mech Eng. – 2010 and M.Eng. Thermal Eng. – 2014). In 2018, he earned his Doctorate from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar, India in Mechanical Engineering (Thermo-Fluids).

Currently, his transdisciplinary research focus is on sustainable neighborhood and energy design that also involves the planning of clean energy resources. Upon joining UPEI in September 2021, he established Future Urban Energy Lab for Sustainability (FUEL-S). The area of work involves energy efficient urban design and energy resources including their planning and optimization promoting long-term sustainability, technological, economic, and environmental adaption. The scope of work varies from the energy modeling of buildings/neighborhoods and energy resources to establishing their optimal planning and operational methodologies yielding sustainability, fuel-stream diversification, GHG emission mitigation, and economic benefits.

Dr. Grewal is contributing as a Design Expert in Task 63: Solar Neighborhood Planning of the International Energy Agency (IEA). He is also acting as Guest Editor for two special issues on Advances in Energy-Efficient Buildings and Clean Energy Systems in Energies Journal. Till date he has several highly reputed peer-reviewed journal and conference articles.
