Venkat Srinivasan is Head of the Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Department at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. He also serves as the Acting Director of the Batteries for Advanced Transportation Technologies (BATT) Program and Deputy Director of the recently announced Energy Storage Hub, titled Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR).

Dr. Srinivasan's research interest is in developing the next-generation batteries for use in vehicle and grid applications. At present, he has projects focused on studying the degradation and performance limitations in advanced lithium-ion cathode and anode materials and on developing high power, low-cost flow batteries for use in stationary energy-storage applications.

Dr. Srinivasan received his bachelors in Electrochemical Engineering from the Central Electrochemical Research Institute (CECRI) in Karaikudi, India, in 1995 and his PhD from the University of South Carolina in Chemical Engineering in 2000. His thesis topic included various aspects in electrochemical capacitors and the nickel hydroxide electrode. He then worked as a research associate at the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering at Penn State University for 18 months where he was involved with projects in lead-acid, alkaline, Ni-MH, and Li-ion batteries. Subsequently he moved to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory/University of California at Berkeley as a postdoc working on modeling iron phosphate-based Li-ion cells. Dr. Srinivasan joined scientific staff at Lawrence Berkeley in 2003.
