Dr. Imre Gyuk

U.S. Department of Energy

Energy Storage Systems, Program Manager

After taking a B.S. from Fordham University, Dr. Gyuk did graduate work at Brown University where he was research assistant to Nobel Laureate Leon Cooper. Having received a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Purdue University, he became a research associate at Syracuse. He has taught Physics, Civil Engineering and Architecture at the University of Wisconsin and at Kuwait University. Diverse research interests have included work on elementary particles, groundwater flow, environmental architecture and cultural dynamics. Dr. Gyuk joined the Department of Energy to manage the Thermal and Physical Storage program. Later he managed DOE's research on biological effects of electric and magnetic fields. Currently he directs the Energy Storage research program which funds work on a wide variety of technologies such as advanced batteries, flywheels, super-capacitors, and of course Compressed Air Energy Storage. Applications include seamless continuity of power supply for high tech industry during outages, making renewables dispatchable, and helping to increase the capacity factor and ease congested distribution lines.
