New Funding for Battery Early Life Prediction Research

SRSL has received research funding from the Iowa Energy Center, administrated by the Economic Development Authority (IEDA), for a collaborative project with Alliant Energy, SunCrate Energy, and Iowa Lakes Community College. This project is titled “Predicting Battery Lifetime with Early-Life Data for Grid Applications.” This two-year project ($280K in total) will develop a new software tool that harnesses the power of machine learning to accelerate the evaluation of battery lifetime in grid applications. The ISU Co-PIs are Dr. Anne Kimber (ECpE), Dr. Zhaoyu Wang (ECpE), and Dr. Gül E. Kremer (IMSE).
