Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has announced that its project for exploring the outer limits of battery operations has been selected by the US Department of Energy to receive funding from the Advanced Research Projects Agency Energy (ARPA-E).

In cooperation with partners NexTech Materials and Beckett Energy Systems, the DNV led project will use battery life prediction modelling and sensor monitoring to identify where the limits of battery operation can be pushed. By implementing the modeling and sensor approach, together with a new sensing technique, the project aims to extract greater performance from batteries. The project uses a new off gas sensing technique, which improves safety, while also deploying life prediction models for commercial application. This detection method can optimise performance and help repurpose batteries for other applications. A second outcome of the project will involve the demonstration of second life batteries in an energy storage application. Testing activities will occur at the DNV KEMA Powertest facility in Chalfont, PA, USA.
