Highly focused, highly collaborative
Center for Research in Extreme Batteries
The Center for Research in Extreme Batteries (CREB) aims to foster and accelerate collaborative research in advanced battery materials and technologies and characterization techniques. CREB’s focus is on batteries for extreme performance, environments and applications (for example: defense, space, biomedical applications). Participation in CREB is open to national and defense labs, universities, and industry.Learn More
Center for Environmental Energy Engineering
CEEE provides innovative solutions to industry's research and development challenges and cost-effective, timely technology transfer. CEEE has developed a highly flexible and task-oriented consortium structure that emphasizes pre-competitive research. Sponsors include industrial companies and government agencies that pool research funds leveraged by additional support from the University of Maryland.
Nanostructures for Electric Energy Storage (NEES)
The Nanostructures for Electrical Energy Storage (NEES) EFRCis a multi-institutional research center, one of 46 Energy Frontier Research Centers established by the US Department of Energy in 2009. The center studies structures that are precise - each at the scale of tens to hundreds of nanometers and ordered in massive arrays - and that are multifunctional - able to conduct electrons, diffuse and store lithium ions, and form a stable mechanical base. The scale and control of experimentation gives NEES researchers an exclusive gateway to probing fundamental kinetic, thermodynamic, and electrochemical processes.Learn More
