Batteries and Energy Storage - Energy Center - Purdue University

Batteries and Energy Storage

Advanced electrochemical systems can significantly change the way we generate, store, and use energy. Projects in this group include development of long-lasting rechargeable batteries with an ultra-fast nanotechnology-based charging process, fuel cells with nano-materials for electrodes and advanced polymer membranes, application of pharmaceutical technology to high speed material screening for batteries and fuel cells, and modeling of battery performance at the molecular level. We are working in partnership with various public universities in Indiana, Ivy Tech community college and Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center.
