Max Wei, program manager for the Energy Analysis and Environmental Impacts Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, recently received a Hydrogen and Fuel Cell award as part of his work with the H2@Scale Team.
The award recognizes multiple visionary researchers from several national labs for their leadership in the development of the groundbreaking H2@Scale initiative. H2@Scale aims to advance affordable widescale hydrogen production, transport, storage, and utilization to unlock revenue potential and value across sectors.
Hydrogen can enable grid services, gigawatt-hour energy storage, and energy generation through multiple technologies that can be geographically widespread. The H2@Scale team has worked tirelessly to develop world-class grid simulation and electrolyzer testing capabilities, conduct outreach to engage key stakeholders from industry in developing the H2@Scale vision and supporting research and development (R&D) efforts, and complete techno-economic analysis to define the value proposition of H2@Scale.
Each year, the Department of Energy presents these Merit Review Awards at the DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program Annual Merit Review and Peer Evaluation Meeting, known as the AMR.
All members of the H2@Scale team included:
Mark Ruth, Paige Jadun, Josh Eichman, Bryan Pivovar, Wesley Cole, James McCall, Elizabeth Connelly, and Nick Gilroy, National Renewable Energy Laboratory Amgad Elgowainy, Argonne National Laboratory Max Wei, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Richard Boardman and Rob Hovsapian, Idaho National Laboratory Jeongwoo Han, ExxonMobil (formerly with Argonne National Laboratory)
Chris Ainscough, National Renewable Energy Laboratory Andrew Martinez, California Air Resources Board Jean Baronas, California Energy Commission Joel Rinebold, Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology
