Energy Storage and Materials Simulation Lab

University of Michigan

The Energy Storage and Materials Simulation Lab aims to overcome the materials and systems-level challenges impeding the development of efficient methods for high-density energy storage.  Our primary emphasis is on applications in transportation (battery electric and fuel cell vehicles) and power generation (enabling base-load intermittent sources). We make extensive use of high-performance computing, and have additional expertise in the areas of gas capture & storage, mechanical properties of materials, surface & interface science, metallic alloys, and multi-scale modeling.
