The UM Battery Lab

The UM Battery Lab is a campus research core offering academic and industrial users from around the globe the expertise and resources required to prototype, test and analyze batteries and the materials that go into them. The lab’s aim: work with the industrial and academic energy storage community to bring together 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, and is a safe zone for IP-protected discovery, scale-up, and testing of next-generation batteries and battery materials.

The Battery Lab, part of the Michigan Materials Research Institute, was developed by U-M in cooperation with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Ford Motor Company.
