COLUMBUS, Ohio and PALO ALTO, Calif. (Feb. 15, 2022) –Research and development powerhouses the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Battelle are teaming up, announcing today a new partnership with industry and other key stakeholders to accelerate the demonstration and deployment of new low-carbon clean energy technologies. 

The unique agreement between EPRI and Battelle, in collaboration with U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) national laboratories, will engage diverse energy representatives from technology developers to energy companies involved in the research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) of the low-carbon energy transformation.

Among other areas of focus, the partnership will leverage real-world experience to ensure demonstration projects are appropriately designed and involve technology deployers early in the process to proactively inform deployment decisions and implementation.

 The initiative builds on the tremendous wealth of knowledge gained by both organizations. EPRI has been a global leader in clean energy research and development, working with public and private stakeholders to accelerate decarbonization through electrification, expand electric vehicle infrastructure, and bolster energy resilience and reliability, among key issues. Battelle has worked for decades with DOE, managing and operating national laboratories that are on the cutting edge of clean energy innovation and technologies. Battelle also has strong capabilities and sustained success in scaling energy technologies in partnership with industry.

 “The global clean energy transformation will require building on the technologies of today with the innovative research of tomorrow,” said EPRI CEO Arshad Mansoor. “This key partnership with Battelle and national laboratories will harness our collective strengths, laying the groundwork for future collaborations and ultimately lead to a successful clean energy transition.”

 “By coordinating closely to leverage complementary skill sets and networks of collaborators, EPRI, Battelle, and national laboratories can effectively work with industry to accelerate demonstration and deployment of new technologies, while remaining consistent with their core missions,” said Mark Peters, Battelle’s executive vice president for National Laboratory Management and Operations. “We look forward to this partnership and the impact it will have on the world.”
