... He unerringly identified the right questions to ask about the right topics, and had the persistence to take research results all the way to advocacy that had real societal impact. And he did it with a friendly and collegial charm that is reflected in the fact that his students simply called him "Art" rather than "Professor Rosenfeld." Born in Alabama on June 22, 1926, Art spent his childhood in Egypt, where his father was a consultant to the Egyptian sugarcane industry.

... The Center for Building Science developed a broad range of energy efficiency technologies, including electronic ballasts for fluorescent lighting -- a key component of compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) -- and a transparent coating for window glass that blocks heat from either escaping (winter)

... Bodman on behalf of President George W Bush, "for a lifetime of achievement ranging from pioneering scientific discoveries in experimental nuclear and particle physics to innovations in science, technology, and public policy for energy conservation that continue to benefit humanity." According to John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy under President Obama, "Art Rosenfeld had an enormous impact on US energy policy, starting in the early 1970s, with his insights and compelling quantitative analyses pointing to the potential of increased end-use efficiency as the cheapest, cleanest, surest response to the nation's energy challenges." California governor Jerry Brown remembered that, "In 1975, Art Rosenfeld told me that simply by requiring more efficient refrigerators, California could save as much energy as would be produced by the proposed Sundesert Nuclear Power plant.

... This marked change in per capita energy was accurately identified as the ‘Rosenfeld Effect,' which is continuing today, four decades later." He added that Art's "indefatigable, highenergy devotion to [the country's] energy challenges became a role model for a large number of younger scientists, including myself.
