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.

  • A Message from JCESR Director George Crabtree

    Despite the coronavirus challenges, JCESR continues to push the frontier of energy storage science as we telecommute from home, like much of the nation. We are turning our attention to computation, data analysis and paper writing which continues at a normal or higher pace, enabled … Read More

  • You’re invited: Idaho National Laboratory and JCESR webinar on energy storage (March 18 )

    Electrification is changing the energy landscape of the Mountain West region. While energy storage remains a key enabler to this transformation, infrastructure upgrade and supply chain development will be a key driver for this new economy. Join us on March 18 for a webinar where we’ll … Read More

  • Direct Nano-Synthesis Methods Notably Benefit Mg-Battery Cathode Performance

    A novel Mg cathode material – CuCo2S4 – was identified as a conversion material where direct nano-synthesis was required to provide the best electrochemical performance and deliver 350 mAh·g-1 at 60 °C, a capacity nearly double that of ball-milled material with similar dimensions. Read More

  • Quantifying Capacity Losses due to Solid Electrolyte Interphase Evolution

    We quantified the capacity loss originating in solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) growth during each cycle and extracted the proportionality constant for SEI growth following a parabolic growth law. This continuous SEI growth contributes to the increasing overpotential, leading to capacity fading at a given constant … Read More

  • On Lifetime and Cost of Redox-Active Organics for Aqueous Flow Batteries

    In this viewpoint, we recommend methodology for (1) testing aqueous organic flow batteries to better understand the fade mechanisms and failure modes, and for (2) techno-economic assessment of these batteries that incorporates the costs associated with electrolyte decay and replacement to articulate a feasible design … Read More
