Johnson Controls donated a suite of battery test equipment available to faculty, students, and other researchers at the new laboratory at the Wisconsin Energy Institute on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
The donation includes state-of-the-art battery testing technology, which will allow students, faculty and engineers to study and optimize energy storage systems. The research will enable manufacturers to build systems that utilize battery power more efficiently.
The lab, called the Johnson Controls Advanced Systems Test Lab, will support research focused on vehicular and stationary energy.
The new Wisconsin Energy Institute is designed to incorporate the energy efficiency that is studied there.
