Research Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab in the Energy Technologies Area
Max Wei has co-led several modeling studies on how California can achieve an 80% reduction in greenhouse gases by 2050. His research interests include emerging applications of hydrogen technologies, helping to enable the transition to low global-warming potential refrigerant air conditioning, and improving climate equity and climate resilience in California.
His past work in the hydrogen area includes total cost of ownership modeling for stationary fuel cell systems and modeling flexible hydrogen resources for grid support. He is currently leading hydrogen-storage projects on unitized reversible fuel cell and megawatt-scale PEM fuel cell system cost analysis.
Prior to joining LBNL, Dr. Wei was a technology development manager at Intel Corporation for 12 years and he holds several patents in semiconductor manufacturing technologies. Dr. Wei has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and an M.B.A., both from the University of California-Berkeley.
