Biography and Headshot:
Charlie Szoradi is a sustainability professional with 30 years of experience and over 10 years of public speaking across a diverse range of engagements. He is the author of LEARN from LOOKING How Observation Inspires Innovation. Over the course of his career Mr. Szoradi has founded GREENandSAVE, Independence LED Lighting the Energy Intelligence Center, and Purge Virus now part of Clean Solution Technologies. Mr. Szoradi focuses on high performance architecture, sustainable living, and next-generation agriculture. Since 2021, Charlie has been serving as the President of The Agrarian Group. In the early 1990s he wrote his Masters of Architecture thesis on Energy Intelligence – “Eco-Humanism.” Mr. Szoradi is a graduate of the University of Virginia, and he earned his Masters from the University of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Szoradi brings three decades of hands-on experience to sustainability and cost-savings for retrofits, new construction, and controlled environment agriculture. He has developed strategic relationships to provide 360° services and clean-technology solutions to commercial properties in the US and around the world. The 21 point schematic is one of his infographics reflecting the breadth of solutions for next-generation real estate.
Mr. Szoradi is a LEED AP (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Accredited Professional), a Certified Building Performance Institute (BPI) Energy Auditor, and he has taken a leadership role in sustainability at the regional and national level. He is a prior member of the Energy and Sustainability Committee for the Society of American Military Engineers (www.SAME.org) and the Leadership Council Chairman of the American LED Alliance (www.AmericanLEDalliance.com). In 2009, Mr. Szoradi was elected to the Board of the Sustainable Business Network and selected as a member of the Green Economy Task Force, with direct participation on the Capitol Hill Delegation. The next year, he moved the company’s LED manufacturing from China to southeastern Pennsylvania. The advanced technology is Buy American Act (BAA) Compliant, manufactured in the U.S.A with over 50% domestic components. Mr. Szoradi led the team, wrote the primary claims, and developed the key figures for the July 21st, 2011 Patent Filing for: LIGHT ENGINE DEVICE WITH DIRECT TO LINEAR SYSTEM DRIVER. The Patent file has multiple different claims and figures. In that same year, the company won the Green Business of the Year Award by the Main Line Chamber of Commerce, followed two years later with the Best Lighting Retrofit by the U.S. Green Building Council for the Urban Green Award. Independence LED Lighting has since earned the trust of facility managers and engineers across the market with installations ranging from Fortune 100 clients to the U.S. Military. The company has also provided the lights for the largest LED tube retrofit in U.S. history with over 2 miles (38 football fields) of installed energy saving tubes. From the cover profile of Inventors Digest Magazine to a speaker at the Made in America State of the Region panel, Mr. Szoradi has dedicated his career to innovation in clean energy technology.
Prior to Independence LED Lighting, Mr. Szoradi founded and ran GREENandSAVE, a leading efficiency resource focusing on Return on Investment (ROI), that was one of the finalists of the Sustainability Awards. Mr. Szoradi has always been inspired by the potential of making environmentally sensitive architecture accessible to mainstream Americans. Rather than just defaulting to techniques from 1970s technology and aesthetics, he created a platform to produce active/passive integrated systems. The design solutions focus on function, style, significant cost-savings, and environmental sustainability. Mr. Szoradi encourages the adaptive re-use of existing structures and materials, all while maintaining functionality and an overall aesthetic that appeals to the traditional as well as contemporary aesthetics. Mr. Szoradi completed the renovation and a major addition to a formerly in-efficient 1950s residence that he and his family were able to “re-use” and transform rather than tear down. The home focuses on saving money as well as the environment, and it is one of the most eco-friendly homes in America. This adaptive-reuse concept is also core to the business model of Independence LED Lighting, in that for many applications the LED tubes replace the less efficient fluorescent tubes while re-use the existing fixture housing for cost-effective results.
Mr. Szoradi is a sought-after subject matter expert and speaker on adaptive re-use and sustainable design with appearances at a diverse range of leading institutions such as the Green Building Council, Brain Reserve Think Tank, and the Wharton Business School. He has served multiple years as the Senior Lecturer at the University of the Arts, where he has created programs such as Urbitec, which focus on innovative product design through recycling and re-use. He has also been featured in a documentary film that received the Director’s Award at the Black Mariah Film Festival. The film specifically profiles his vision and follows the process of adaptive re-use in converting a 22,000 square foot abandoned church complex into a mixed-use residential and commercial property. Mr. Szoradi has also served as a consultant to the Philadelphia Office of Recycling across many years. He created the education kiosk program and the website as the cornerstone of the interactive marketing initiative.
1993 and 1994 were benchmark years that “seeded” the growth of Independence LED Lighting. In 1993, Mr. Szoradi completed his Masters Thesis and secured his first US Patent #5,215,490 on the modular building block set of tenon engaging edge connecting members. The thesis set the stage for the groundbreaking new approach to energy efficient and environmentally sustainable architecture. The invention set the stage for a new modular approach to lighting, given the patent’s focus on modular construction sets, which also led to applications in high performance concrete and structural insulated panels.
In 1994, Mr. Szoradi conceived and produced a pilot Eco-Culture/Recycling show “Fix the Hut.” The show was the culmination of over twenty-five interview segments shot across the country over a two-year period. The show focused specifically on people that had created innovative habitats, furniture, fashion, and lifestyles related to adaptive re-use and environmental sustainability. This interest in communicating through eco-education programs, speaking engagements, and media has coincided with Mr. Szoradi’s ongoing work in architecture, energy smart real estate development, and high-performance lighting. Over his career, Mr. Szoradi has partnered to purchase over 200,000 sq. ft. of urban space that he has had a hand in converting from “left for ruin” factories, warehouses, and schools into mixed-use residential and commercial property. Transforming neighborhoods and salvaging urban landscape has been an integral part of overall sustainability in his career. Over the course of his energy auditing, Mr. Szoradi continued to see commercial properties with fluorescent tubes that had not been optimized for decades. He found that lighting accounted for over 25% of commercial electricity, which inspired the LED technology which now cots the wattage and cost by more than half.
Mr. Szoradi’s early inspiration to focus on sustainability came at the end of the 1970s when he sat at a young age in a gas line with his dad during the gas crisis. His father, an architect that had escaped through the Soviet iron curtain to come from Hungary to America in 1957, introduced his son to colleagues that were then pioneering active and passive solar powered houses in America. Mr. Szoradi learned from is dad that Jimmy Carter put solar panels on the White House, so he teamed up with two friends at St. Albans School for Boys and proceeded to build “Omega – The Boat of the Future” and subsequently won the Grade School Science Fair Popular Prize with their solar powered ship. Over extended family events, like Thanksgiving, Mr. Szoradi also learned in his childhood about his great grandfather on his mother’s side. Carl Zwermann had secured over a dozen patents of his engineering designs for what we all use and take for granted today. He invented key aspects of the “water closet” with the bowl, tank, and interior mechanics that we now call the modern toilet. His manufacturing facilities in Michigan and Illinois became key cornerstones of production in the early decades of the 1900s. The production plants also used innovative thermal management to increase efficiency in the porcelain kiln and drying processes. By the end of the 1920s, Carl Zwermann had built the family’s U.S. porcelain sanitary plant into one of the largest manufacturing facilities of its kind in the world. Years later, major influences on Mr. Szoradi have also included working in Northern California’s bay area, working in Japan for the celebrated eco-architect Kinya Maruyama, living in Eastern European hubs like Budapest and Prague, rural villages, and Amish communities that rely almost exclusively on sustainable living practices.
Over his academic and professional career, Mr. Szoradi has traveled extensively throughout Asia, Africa, Central America, North America, plus Central and Eastern Europe, where he has studied specifically how people build cost-effective and environmentally sensitive homes, commercial structures, and communities. Mr. Szoradi grew up in Washington, DC and graduated from St. Albans School for Boys. He then earned his undergraduate degree in Architecture from the University of Virginia and went on to earn his Masters of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Szoradi currently lives in Greater Philadelphia and also spends time at his family residence in Stone Harbor, NJ, which includes a solar roof, EV car charging and rain water collection for the homes edible garden.
Mr. Szoradi comes from a four-generation line of patent holders, U.S. manufacturers, and innovators across the built world with 100 Years of Family Innovation.

“It was a pleasure to include you in the discussion; and thanks for sending your presentation and for offering to send a video of your talk. Just a heads up that we do videotape a lot of our sessions and post them, along with session presentations, though we tend to keep the discussion that occurs during committee meetings off the record, because sometimes legislators make candid comments that they would like to keep within the committee. But in this case, it should be no problem to post your edited video. I have forwarded your expenses to our administrative staff. The Puerto Rico meeting is being organized by our national office, so I will not be involved with the programming. I will, however, let them know that you are available if they are planning to have a discussion on sustainability. Thanks again for making the trip to Pittsburgh. I wish that we had more time to explore some of the ideas that you introduced regarding food waste-to-fuel technologies and job creation, but perhaps we can take up those topics at a future meeting.”
