Dr. Jaume Salom joined the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC – in January 2010, where he currently leads the research group in Thermal Energy and Building Performance. Previously, in 1999, he has co-founded AIGUASOL, a cooperative firm, which has became an international reference in the fields of thermal energy efficiency, renewable energies, building physics and software development. Since 2006 until the end of 2009, Dr. Jaume Salom has been the General Manager of AIGUASOL and he has leaded several departments in the company over the last decade: the Building Physics group (1999-2005), the Software group (1999-2008) and Financial & Economical Department (since 2003). He holds a doctorate degree in Thermal Engineering from the Polytechnical University of Catalonia and he has research and professional experience in the fields of heat and mass transfer, fluid mechanics, numerical and dynamic simulation, energy efficiency, building physics, thermal comfort, software development and daylighting. Additionally, he is founder and minor partner of a new company which is devoted to develop a solar thermal concentrating collector with stationary reflector.
He collaborates in several national and international research and consultancy projects. He has leaded the promotion and consolidation of the use of advanced simulation tools in Spain and Portugal like TRNSYS (more than 100 users), EES or Meteonorm. He is one of the main developers of the TRANSOL tool (more than 400 users over the world) for the simulation and design of solar thermal systems. He teaches in master and postgraduate courses and also has interest on project management, leading & organizational aspects of work groups and business intelligence. Dr. Jaume Salom was born in 1969 in Mallorca.
