Biography:

Dr. K. Andreas Friedrich is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at University of Stuttgart and the Head of the Electrochemical Energy Technology Department at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Stuttgart, Germany. 

His research areas are electrochemical energy conversion and storage, in particular polymer electrolyte fuel cells and electrolysis, solid oxide cells, system design and optimization. Dr. Friedrich has authored and coauthored about 200 reviewed papers. He received the Fischer medal (Dechema) in 2009 and the Ertl prize 2014 for his scientific work.

Dr. Friedrich has an initial background in Physics and Physical Chemistry. Starting with early fundamental work on electrochemical interfaces and electrocatalysts the research has become increasingly application oriented. His doctoral study on non-linear optics at electrochemical interfaces was performed at the Fritz-Haber Institute of the Max-Planck-Society from 1987 –1990 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. G. Ertl (Nobel prize laurate in Chemistry). 

His former employments include research associate positions at University of Oregon and Research Center Jülich. Senior scientist positions were held at Technical University Munich and ZSW (Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research) in Ulm. In 2004 he joined the DLR and University of Stuttgart heading the group focusing on electrolysis, fuel cells and advanced batteries. Priorities are polymer membrane and solid oxide technology as well as “beyond Li-ion” technology in batteries. The primary goals of the group comprise enhanced power density, long lifetime, reduction of precious materials and manufacturing costs, identification of degradation mechanisms in stacks and their prevention, advanced stack design, and optimised integration of fuel cells into energy supply systems. The activities of the group have received the f-cell Award in Silver 2016 for electrolysis components, the Clean Tech Media Award 2012 (Aviation) and the f-cell Award in Silver 2008 (DLR with Airbus).
