$1.4 Million in Funding for Development of Energy Storage Technologies

New York state has awarded two Central New York companies and a university $250,000 each for their work on new technologies in battery and energy storage.

A total of six organizations statewide will share in the $1.4 million in funding, the office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a news release.

The recipients include Custom Electronics, Inc. of Oneonta; Widetronix, Inc. of Ithaca; and Cornell University, the governor’s office said.

The technologies will help develop working prototypes that demonstrate the ability of these advanced energy-storage systems to harden the state’s electric grid and diversify transportation fuels, Cuomo’s office said.

Funding is provided through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology (NY-BEST) consortium bench-to-prototype solicitation.
