UL Research Institute ESRI opens dedicated lab to study RE energy storage
The Electrochemical Safety Research Institute (ESRI), one of the five UL Research Institutes, has opened a new laboratory in Houston to study renewable energy technologies designed to mitigate climate change.
Housed in University of Houston (UH) Technology Bridge, the ESRI's lab would strengthen collaborations with research universities and scientific organizations and facilitating partnerships to create a safer and more sustainable energy storage ecosystem across the world, according to the organization.
"We're excited to grow and build our partnerships in the Houston area research community, which is known for its energy technology innovation and leadership," said Dr. Judy Jeevarajan, ESRI's executive director.
"When we coordinate with premier academic, business, and government agency partners, we strengthen our ability to advance safer energy storage through science", she added.
Joined by research and business partners, ESRI and UL enterprise leaders celebrated the launch of the new ESRI laboratory within the University of Houston Technology Bridge in November last year.
ESRI focuses on renewable energy technologies designed to mitigate climate change and support the world's transition to a clean energy future.
UL Research Institutes (ULRI) commits to addressing the global grand challenges of building a resilient and sustainable future, protecting individual and societal health, and mitigating as well as understanding the risks that digital systems pose.
