Congratulations to Professor Nigel Brandon OBE FREng FRS CEng FIMMM who has been recently elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in recognition of his work on electrochemical devices for energy applications.

Nigel Brandon is Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Chair of Sustainable Development in Energy at Imperial College London. He is distinguished for his research in electrochemical devices for applications in the low-carbon energy transition, with a particular focus on fuel cells, batteries and hydrogen. He is known for bridging the gap between fundamental materials sciences and electrochemical device engineering, creating novel devices that offer significant technological benefit.

Professor Brandon holds an engineering degree and PhD from Imperial, to which he returned as an academic in 1998 following a 14-year research career with BP and Rolls-Royce. He is a founder of Ceres Power, a UK company developing fuel cell and electrolyser technology, and a founder of RFC Power, a UK company developing a novel liquid-gas battery for longer term energy storage. He is also Director of the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cells SUPERGEN Hub and Chair of Imperial’s Sustainable Gas Institute.

Professor Brandon was awarded an OBE in 2011 for his services to UK-China science in the field of energy and climate change.
