Heinz Frei

Senior Scientist

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Heinz Frei is a Senior Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California, and Deputy Director of the Helios Solar Energy Research Center at LBNL. He studied chemistry at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich and received his doctorate degree at ETH in the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry in 1977. After a postdoctoral stay at the Chemistry Department of the University of California at Berkeley, he started a research group in solar photochemistry at LBNL with focus on chemistry with near infrared light, work for which he received the Werner Prize in 1990. Over the past two decades, Frei has established new methods for utilizing visible and near infrared light for the environmentally friendly synthesis of useful chemicals, and for the chemical storage of solar photons. Currently, his research effort focuses on the scientific challenges of the direct conversion of carbon dioxide and water to a liquid fuel by artificial photosynthesis. A frequent plenary lecturer at international conferences and member of Department of Energy workshop panels, he has co-organized several symposia of sunlight to fuel conversion in the past few years and currently serves on the Expert Group on Science for Energy of the International Energy Agency. He is an editor of the Royal Society of Chemistry Energy and Environment Series. He leads the Interface Project of the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP), the country?s first solar fuels innovation hub.
