Available Technologies

JCESR researchers have developed a wide and diverse range of technologies that may have a worldwide impact in the area of energy storage. JCESR grants licenses for JCESR-developed intellectual property to existing and start-up companies that are technically and financially capable of turning early-stage technology into commercial products. We are committed to negotiating fair and reasonable license agreements that are beneficial to both parties. We work with our licensees to make these technologies a success in the commercial world.
