The Battery Fabrication and Characterization User Facility, or Battery Lab, is a space developed by U-M in cooperation with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Ford Motor Company. The lab’s aim: work with the industrial and academic energy storage user community to prototype, test and analyze batteries and the materials that go into them. The Battery Lab brings together materials scientists and engineers, as well as suppliers and manufacturers, to ease a bottleneck in battery development near the nation’s automotive capital. The lab is available for any firm or researcher to use. The Energy Institute is proud to host the facility, a safe zone for IP-protected discovery and scale-up of next-generation batteries.
