Dr. Anand R. Gopal is a program officer in the Environment Program at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Anand manages the program’s grantmaking on clean transportation within its climate and energy strategy. His grantmaking works at the intersection of transportation, electric power, and related supply chains, supporting innovative approaches to transportation that give people more choice, flexibility, and connectivity, and that move goods and services more efficiently with the least possible greenhouse gas emissions.
Previously Anand was a research scientist in clean energy and transportation at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). He led LBNL’s global research on transportation solutions for climate mitigation, and his research used interdisciplinary methods from engineering and economics to assess the intersection of electric power and transport. He has a doctorate in energy and resources from University of California, Berkeley, a Master’s of Science in environmental systems engineering from Humboldt State University, and a Bachelor’s of Science in civil engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras.
