Previously, Jorg led strategy, sales and operations for Primus Power, a disruptive long-duration energy storage provider. He led SunPower’s global power plant business unit ($1.5B+ P&L) and several other transformational leadership roles. Jorg’s teams built over 2000+ MW of solar power plants, SunPower’s primary profit driver at that time and achieved over 60% reduction in cost reductions while driving major improvements in business development, sales, engineering, procurement, construction, operations, customer service and support.
Before joining SunPower, Jorg served as an Executive Partner and practice leader at Accenture where he was instrumental in driving large scale system integration and business process change programs for prominent high-tech companies including Apple, Autodesk, Cadence, Hewlett-Packard, Hitachi, Intuit, and Sun Microsystems. Jorg began his career developing custom capital markets trading systems based in Zurich, Switzerland.
Jorg is passionate about changing the way our world is powered, customer focus, effective teamwork, and delivering results.
Chairman and Chief Technology Advisor
Professor Cui leads a research lab at Stanford University which is focused on materials innovations for sustainability including nanomaterials, energy, electrochemistry, batteries, solar cells, transparent electrodes, electrocatalysis, 2D layered materials, topological insulators, water filtration, air filtration, solid clean up, wearable technology, nanobiotechnology.
Professor Cui is widely recognized as one of the most influential Materials Science researchers globally. He has published nearly 500 research papers and was ranked NO.1 in Materials Science by Thomson Reuters as “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds” in 2014, as well as other awards including: the Dan Maydan Prize in Nanoscience (2020), Nano Today Award (2020), Electrochemical Society Battery Technology Award (2019), Blavatnik National Laureate (2017), MRS Kavli Distinguished Lectureship in Nanoscience (2015), the Sloan Research Fellowship (2010), KAUST Investigator Award (2008), ONR Young Investigator Award (2008), Technology Review World Top Young Innovator Award (2004).
Cui has founded multiple companies to commercialize technologies from his group including: Amprius Inc., 4C Air Inc. and EEnotech, Inc. In 2020 EEnotech launched EnerVenue as a spinout for which Prof. Cui serves as Chairman and Chief Technology Advisor.
Professor Cui received B.S. in Chemistry at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), a Ph.D at Harvard University and a Miller Postdoctoral Fellowship at University of California, Berkeley.
Majid Keshavarz leads EnerVenue’s product development team. He has over 20 years of renewable energy storage technology leadership experience. Previously, Dr. Keshavarz led R&D at Natron Energy, a startup based in the San Francisco Bay area that is developing a new sodium-ion battery technology. He was the Chief Technology Officer with Imergy Power Systems.
Dr. Keshavarz has extensive experience in the technical and managerial oversight of research and development activities and technology commercialization in electrochemical energy storage and material science. He was responsible for Imergy’s core vanadium flow battery technology and for designing platforms for applications requiring long discharge duration and frequent cycling. Prior to Imergy Power (Deeya Energy), he worked on the experimental strategies for high-throughput materials development for semiconductor industry at Intermolecular Inc. An early employee of UltraDots Inc., he was responsible for development of silicon and germanium nanomaterials for photonic and photovoltaic devices. Prior to UltraDots, he spent five years at Roche Bioscience (Roche Holding), where he worked on the development and optimization of efficient routes for new drug candidates and prepared active pharmaceutical ingredients on a large scale for clinical studies.
Majid obtained his Ph.D. in chemistry from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. For his postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute for Polymers and Organic Solids at University of California at Santa Barbara, he studied the chemistry of exotic materials such as Buckminsterfullerene, C60 and conducting polymers. He has authored numerous scientific publications and US patents.
We’re looking for energetic, creative, diverse and talented team members who are passionate about accelerating the clean energy revolution.
- EnerVenue Launches with $12 Million in Funding to Bring Aerospace-Proven Metal-Hydrogen Battery Technology into the Clean Energy RevolutionA zero maintenance and lower cost alternative to lithium-ion batteries, EnerVenue has discovered how to make metal-hydrogen battery technology available to large-scale stationary energy storage applications – even in the most challenging climates
Battery Technology Used in Outer Space Could Be a Gamechanger on Earth
Lithium-ion has become the dominant battery technology used in energy storage applications around the world, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only, or even the best, technology available. Many companies are working on different battery chemistries that could provide safer, longer-lasting, and ultimately more cost-effective options. One alternative that has gotten little exposure until now is a battery chemistry with a 30-plus-year history of successful operation. It’s a metal-hydrogen battery, which has been used by NASA on space missions, including in the Hubble Space Telescope, the Mars Curiosity rover, and the International Space Station.
As more utilities make net-zero carbon pledges, energy storage will be critical to offset the intermittency of renewable energy…
One start-up – a California firm named EnerVenue – has hit upon a sturdy, dependable, and modestly-priced solution to the grid’s storage issues.
Take a listen to EnerVenue CEO, Jorg Heinemann speaking with David Hunt about the renewable energy transition and implications for battery technology on the latest Leaders in Cleantech Podcast.
