JCESR has created an affiliate program that brings together more than 100 small and large businesses, non-profits, universities, and national laboratories to further promote public-private partnerships. The program includes nearly one-hundred stakeholder organizations involved in electrical energy storage, ranging from chemical and material manufacturers to battery system integrators and testers. As new technologies are developed and needs identified, affiliates have the opportunity to engage with the research to accelerate innovation.

JCESR encourages organizations involved in energy storage to seek membership. To become an affiliate, send us an email describing how your organization is contributing to advancements in energy storage research, development, and commercialization.

Annual Affiliate Workshop

JCESR hosts an annual in-person Affiliate Workshop. The meeting allows affiliates to engage with each other and with representatives from JCESR staff, management, and specific research projects. This networking and industry event is an extension of JCESR’s effort to conduct business differently, enabling stakeholders to discuss opportunities and difficulties across the supply chain.

  • Understanding fluorine-free electrolytes via small-angle X-ray scattering

    We compare the solvation phenomenon of sodium tetraphenylborate (NaBPh4) salt dissolved in organic solvents of propylene carbonate (PC), 1,2-dimethoxyethane (DME), acetonitrile (ACN) and tetrahydrofuran (THF) by SAXS/WAXS measurement and MD simulation. Read More

  • Navigating the Minefield of Battery Literature

    This is an invited perspective aiming to help researchers new to the field of battery research to circumvent certain recurring misconceptions and inaccuracies in the current battery literature. It covers the electrolyte ideality and practical situation in batteries, the difficulty in accurately determining ion transference … Read More

  • Quantifying Lithium Ion Exchange in Solid Electrolyte Interphase (SEI) on Graphite Anode Surfaces

    By using Li isotopic labelling of SEIs and electrolytes followed by time-of-flight secondary-ion mass spectroscopy and solid-state NMR analyses, we found that the majority of Li+ “immobilized” in the chemical ingredients were exchanged after 1 SEI formation cycle. Ion exchange by diffusion based on concentration … Read More
