Argonne National Laboratory has chosen TIAX LLC as an affiliate member company of the energy storage hub to be known as the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), which combines the R&D capabilities of five US Department of Energy national laboratories with selected companies and research universities. (Earlier post.)
The Hub award, funded for up to $120 million over five years, was selected through an open national competition with a merit review process that relied on outside expert reviewers. TIAX was part of the consortium formed for the grant application.
We’re very pleased to have TIAX as an affiliate member of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research. TIAX is the kind of affiliate company we are seeking because TIAX brings to the table a firm understanding of the challenges involved in developing high-impact advanced battery materials coupled with the equally important task of moving these types of innovations into the marketplace in a time-efficient way.—Jeff Chamberlain, JCESR’s Deputy Director of Development and Demonstration
