About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory addresses the world’s most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing theorigin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab’s scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

About CalCharge
CalCharge was co-founded by CalCEF, a family of nonprofit organizations working to promote the transition to a clean energy economy, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Launched in 2013, CalCharge brings together emerging and established California companies, academic and research institutions, government bodies, and financing sources to jumpstart a new era of energy storage technologies for the electric/hybrid vehicle, grid, and consumer electronics markets.  Through its programs, CalCharge enables diverse stakeholders to collaborate, identify barriers to emerging technology success, develop solutions, and helps to provide access to resources that clear the path to commercialization.

About CalCharge Technology Acceleration Program
CalCharge and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) are committed to accelerating technology innovation in the California energy storage industry. Berkeley Lab, in keeping with the Department of Energy’s goal of more deeply engaging private industry with the national labs, is dedicating significant resources to helping member companies with technology assessment, R&D support, modeling and design, and IP management. CalCharge intends to expand upon this model to include services from other regional research institutions as well.

About Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division
The Electrochemical Technologies Group in the Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division at Berkeley Lab conducts innovative research to understand the basic and fundamental science of next-generation batteries and to overcome technological barriers to their commercialization. Funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy, it is one of the world’s leading centers for advanced battery and fuel cells research. Current programs are focused on batteries for electric vehicles and grid storage, and fuel cells for transportation and stationary applications.

FLEXLAB at Berkeley Lab is the most flexible, comprehensive, and advanced building efficiency simulator in the world, and it’s unleashing the full potential of energy efficiency in buildings. FLEXLAB lets users test energy-efficient building systems individually or as an integrated system, under real-world conditions. FLEXLAB test beds can test HVAC, lighting, windows, building envelope, control systems, and plug loads in any combination and is now poised to install PV modules and battery storage in the coming months. Users can test alternatives, perform cost-benefit analyses, and ensure a building will be as efficient as possible — before construction or retrofitting even begins. FLEXLAB is the latest in Berkeley Lab’s long line of game-changing energy efficiency innovations.
