BatPRO is the user-friendly, Windows-based version of BatPaC, a software modeling tool designed for policymakers and researchers who are interested in estimating the cost of lithium-ion batteries after they have reached a mature state of development and are being manufactured in high volumes. BatPRO captures the interplay between the design and cost of these batteries for transportation applications.

BatPRO comes with a standard library of five lithium battery types and default inputs for all the parameters specified in different manufacturing areas of a factory.
