DOE Invests Millions in Battery Research

This grant, distributed over five years, should improve both electric-powered transportation and sustainable energy usage.

During the next five years, the U.S. Department of Energy will be pouring $120 million into the most advanced energy storage research program in the country. This newly created program, the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), is working to improve battery technology.

This battery and energy storage hub will be striving to increase battery power used in both transportation needs and electrical grids. With an increase in battery storage capabilities, vehicles can go farther on less gas or even through being electorally charged. The research done through this grant will strive to use this electric technology on a full scale.

In terms of electric grids, storage improvements will allow energy to be stored from renewable resources like wind and solar power.

"The new Hub will integrate efforts at several successful independent research programs into a larger, coordinated effort designed to push the limits on battery advances," DOE said in a statement on its website. "In all, JCESR will combine the R&D firepower of five DOE national laboratories, five universities and four private firms in an effort aimed at achieving revolutionary advances in battery performance."

More information about the hub can be found on DOE's website.
