EnerDel & Purdue Collaborating on Li-Ion Research

EnerDel is giving Purdue University’s College of Technology lithium-ion battery cells and research data worth about $263,000USD.

This complements the $4.7 millionUSD grant that Purdue and Ivy Tech Community College got from the U.S. Department of Energy to advance training geared towards the electric-energy industry.

EnerDel CEO, David Roberts, earlier stated that the company was trying to lessen its dependence on electric vehicles and emphasize more on batteries geared towards grid and home energy storage, as well as medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.

In March, EnerDel’s partner, Ener1, received $86 million in new equity and debt-holder agreements, and in July, EnerDel won a second contract to make lithium-ion batteries for the all-electric version of the Volvo C3o.
