Energy Storage Licensing Opportunities at ORNL

Storage Technologies

brochureORNL researchers are working with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and industry to develop new battery technologies that extend battery lifetime, increase energy and power density, reduce battery size and cost, and improve safety. ORNL scientists are concentrating their expertise in electrochemical engineering, novel materials, chemical processing, and systems simulations to identify battery performance limitations and develop revolutionary technologies and manufacturing processes for lithium ion batteries and next-generation energy storage. Using unique instruments and facilities, including the world’s fastest supercomputer, the world’s brightest neutron source, and the nation’s largest open-access battery manufacturing research and development center, ORNL scientists are studying battery materials from the atomic level sizes up to 7 Ah pouch cells. Many of these researchers’ innovations are available for licensing, and opportunities exist for collaborative research and development.
