Energy storage, mobile or stationary, is a critical focus of energy’s future. At the utility scale, storage provides an enabling technology for:
Electrochemical systems can manage and store energy, allowing it to be accessed rapidly, reliably and repeatedly. CWRU has a reputation for energy related research in electrochemistry, which is now bolstered by the Electrochemical Engineering and Energy Laboratory (EEEL). The lab provides:
CWRU also conducts research on capacitors from a materials viewpoint. These technologies can enable mobile and small-scale applications, from transportation to defense.
