Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories battery group is making industry engagement a top priority as it looks to advance the technology.
The US university wants to partner with energy storage companies and accelerate innovative research in a bid to discover the holy grail of electric vehicle OEMs —a cost-effective battery that can go 300 miles on a single charge.
Battery scientist Venkat Srinivasan said quick progression would only happen if the university worked alongside materials companies, battery companies, and car companies.
Energy storage researchers at Berkeley Lab offers companies the chance to collaborate with its scientists working on vehicle batteries, grid storage batteries, and reversible fuel cells or to use its scientific facilities.
The mechanisms are detailed in a new website energystorage.lbl.gov.
