Johnson Controls Lands $5.4 Million Battery Deal

The United States Advanced Battery Consortium LLC (USABC) has announced it’s awarded a $5.48-million lithium-ion battery technology development contract to Johnson Controls Inc. (NYSE:JCI)

The $5.4 million will be used to aid in the process of developing JCI’s lithium-ion battery technology for plug-in hybrids vehicles. The award is co-funded by the DOE and includes a 50% cost-share by Johnson Controls.

For the duration of the 24-month program, Johnson Controls will spend the bulk of its time researching how to increase the volumetric energy density of hard-cased prismatic cell technology, which was leftover from the last USABC contract award winners. With the improved energy density, volume and mass issues are addressed while also helping drop the price of the battery.
