Personal Profile

Jonathan Martin is a research engineer in the Hybrid Energy Systems group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). He studies combinations of different renewable energy generation (wind, solar, etc.), storage (battery, hydrogen, etc.), and end use (EV charging, renewable fuel production & combustion) technologies into synergistic hybrid energy systems. Of particular interest to Dr. Martin are the decarbonization of fuel production pathways and combustion-based end use systems that are difficult to electrify. Among his many research projects at NREL include the practical demonstration of hybrid control strategies (generation forecasting and battery charging/discharging schedules), validation of simulated future hybrid concepts, and techno-economic assessment of hybrid system applications, such as the use of hybrids to produce low-carbon fuels for hard-to-decarbonize sectors like marine transport. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, where his research was focused on the applications of renewable fuels.
