The Energy Department on 30 November, announced that its Argonne suburb was elected national laboratory in Chicago for a price of up to $120 million within five years to a multipartner a new batteries and energy storage hub to connect team. Called the hub, the Joint Center for energy storage research (JCESR), research and development makes the five Department of energy national laboratories, five universities and four private companies in an effort that combine to achieve the revolutionary advances in battery performance. Advancing next-generation technologies are an important part of the President Obama of the strategy to reduce dependence on foreign oil and lower energy costs for U.S. consumers battery and energy storage for electric and hybrid cars and the power grid.
Other national laboratories, a partnership with Argonne are Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Partner universities include the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, University of Illinois-Chicago, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and University of Michigan. Four industrial partners have also joined; including Dow Chemical Company, applied materials, Inc.; Johnson controls, Inc.; and clean energy trust.
Does the State of Illinois to build the State-of-art JCESR helper function $5 million campus located on the Argonne in the suburb of Chicago. JCESR is the fourth energy innovation hub, produced by the Department of energy since the modeling and simulation of nuclear reactors, to achieve significant improvements in the energy efficiency of buildings and the development of fuels from sunlight are 2010 other hubs dedicated. A fifth hub focused on critical materials research was announced earlier this year and is still in the application process. See Energy Department press release.
