Title: Isothermal Battery Calorimeter Technology Transfer and Development: Cooperative Research and Development Final Report

During the last 15 years, NREL has been utilizing its unique expertise and capabilities to work with industry partners on battery thermal testing and electric and hybrid vehicle simulation and testing. Further information and publications about NREL’s work and unique capabilities in battery testing and modeling can be found at NREL’s Energy Storage website: Particularly, NREL has developed and fabricated a large volume isothermal battery calorimeter that has been made available for licensing and potential commercialization ( In summer of 2011, NREL developed and fabricated a smaller version of the large volume isothermal battery calorimeter, called hereafter “cell-scale LVBC.” NETZSCH Instruments North America, LLC is a leading company in thermal analysis, calorimetry, and determination of thermo-physical properties of materials ( NETZSCH is interested in evaluation and eventual commercialization of the NREL large volume isothermal battery calorimeter.
