Venkat Subramanian is a Professor and Ernest Dashiell Cockrell II Chair in Engineering at the Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Texas – Austin.
High energy and power batteries are critical for the next generation of clean energy grid and transportation technologies. They store energy from renewables like solar and wind, and make it available later when needed. Batteries can dispatch energy in a blink, so they let the grid and transportation operate at maximum efficiency. Professor Subramanian’s model and software will make next generation batteries safer, have higher energy storage capacity, recharge faster, and last longer.
