USA: Johnson Controls, universities plan energy storage research venture

Johnson Controls Inc. is building a two-story addition to its Power Solutions headquarters on its Glendale campus. The company’s battery business has grown to worldwide sales of $6 billion annually from $1 billion in 2000.
Johnson Controls’ power solutions business is working with the University of Wisconsin System and its two largest campuses on plans for a statewide partnership to advance research in energy storage technologies.

The partnership is expected to “foster collaborative research in energy storage that will further position Wisconsin as an emerging technology leader,” according to a statement issued Tuesday.

The Johnson Controls-UW partnership “will include new research faculty and laboratory space at UW-Madison and UW-Milwaukee,” the statement says.

Gov. Scott Walker will announce details of the partnership Thursday.
