Picture of the Power and Energy Lab

The power and energy lab provides a safe, controlled environment for the evaluation of new power and energy sources from the component level to integrated systems. The lab has the following features:

  • Dry room for custom battery assembly and experimentation, particularly for lithium-based battery technology.
  • Glovebox containing argon for safe handling of lithium.
  • Solar simulators for photovoltaic research.
  • Environmental chambers for temperature and atmosphere stress testing.
  • Gas manifolds dedicated to fuels and oxidizers.
  • Isolation room for safe evaluation of systems.
