Johnson Controls partners with Lawrence Technological University on new vehicle energy storage technologies

29 January 2014

Johnson Controls will partner with Lawrence Technological University (LTU) in Southfield, Mich. to identify and validate new energy storage technologies within the total vehicle system.

Johnson Controls will donate and install advanced test equipment and deploy technical resources to the university to propel academic and applied research into optimizing vehicle and battery design.

LTU is leveraging its faculty expertise and research facilities in energy storage systems, electrification applications, modeling and simulation, and vehicle testing to assist Johnson Controls in meeting its progressive research-and-development objectives.

We believe strongly in building the next generation of technical leaders through academic partnerships. Our partnership with LTU is an example of our commitment to developing new battery technologies. It is also an investment in both the future of academic research in energy management as well as the development of the talent pipeline for our industry.

—MaryAnn Wright, vice president of Engineering and Product Development for Johnson Controls Power Solutions

Wright joined LTU’s board of trustees in 2013.
