MSU's 'Better Batteries' Offer New Business Opportunities

The key to all advanced energy systems is the ability to store energy generated at various times, from various fuel sources, for immediate use when it is needed.

That’s one of the challenges we’re
working on at MSU. We want to work with you to make these new energy storage technologies a marketplace reality.


Your research and development team can work with MSU faculty researchers to develop new ideas or to refine or test your innovations. Your company may recognize the commercial value of one of our faculty innovations. Either way, we can work with you to design mutually beneficial arrangements for bringing new products to market.
