A partnership between the University of Toronto and semiconductor developer Sendyne Corporation aims to create the next generation of batteries technology.
Led by Professor Aleksandar Prodic (ECE), the objective is to create highly efficient battery storage systems and electronics for Electric Vehicles (EV) and utility scale battery packs by applying state-of-the-art technology and silicon design.
Energy storage is a critically important aspect of enabling the broad use of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power. While existing systems have the potential to reduce global energy consumption of fossil fuels, their high cost to performance ratio have prevented them from being widely adopted. Through their research, Professor Prodic and his team will seek to improve battery storage system productivity and affordability.
The research will be conducted at U of T Engineering’s Laboratory for Low-Power Management and Integrated Switch-Mode Power Supplies, a facility founded by Professor Prodic in 2004. New York-based Sendyne, will contribute its patented technology, intellectual property, development tools and scientific expertise to support the project.
