We are a multidisciplinary team of world-renowned researchers developing advanced energy storage technologies to aid the growth of the U.S. battery manufacturing industry, support materials suppliers, and work with end-users to transition the U.S. automotive fleet towards electric vehicles while enabling greater use of renewable energy.
We have been an active research program for nearly 60 years supporting vehicle electrification through a program focused on creating a diverse research portfolio on advanced energy storage materials, systems, and modeling for both mobile and stationary applications. Our efforts have lead to development of several technologies including Li-rich NMC materials, fluorinated electrolytes, flow batteries for grid storage, intermetallic anodes, as well as the techno-economic modeling software BatPaC. Through the study of cost-effective and high-energy density advanced lithium-ion and beyond lithium-ion battery technologies (i.e. gradient NMC, Li-Air, Mg-ion, Na-ion, solid electrolytes), our science and engineering capabilities are developing next generation storage materials and systems that can dramatically increase energy and power densities.
