RIT's State-of-the-art Battery Prototyping Center

The Battery Prototyping Center (BPC) at Rochester Institute of Technology focuses on the development of emerging energy storage technologies through a partnership between RIT and NY-BEST Consortium. BPC is made possible by financial support from NYSERDA, Empire State Development, and SoLith. BPC provides prototyping services for more than 125 active members within the NY-BEST consortium and features a 1000 ft2 dry room. The dry room is split into two rooms with one side containing the pouch cell assembly equipment, and the remaining space is available for other moisture sensitive experiments and future expansion. BPC works closely with the NY-BEST Commercialization Center to ensure quality and reproducibility in the performance of the cells.
