Berkeley Lab and Hydro-Québec Announce Partnership for Transportation Electrification and Energy Storage

November 8, 2017

Hydro-Québec and the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have agreed to explore collaborations toward the research and development of manufacturing and scale-up technology to advance transportation electrification and energy storage.

The two institutions have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to assess the feasibility of creating a Québec Berkeley (QUBE) joint research center based in the San Francisco Bay Area that will speed up development of next-generation battery materials, processes, and methodologies and conduct manufacturing from pilot scale to pre-production levels. The technologies developed will be transferred to battery manufacturers, leading to job creation in Québec and California.

"Hydro-Québec is a world leader in scaling up energy storage to the marketplace, and this MOU provides a unique opportunity for collaboration," said Berkeley Lab Director Mike Witherell. "Berkeley Lab's groundbreaking research in this arena is also well-recognized, and this is an excellent way to partner on a project that will provide significant benefits to both Canada and the U.S. We are especially excited about creating jobs in both Canada and California."
