Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster (NEESC) and Western New England University

About NEESC - www.neesc.org

The Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster is a network of industry, academic, government and non-governmental leaders working together to provide energy storage solutions. The cluster is focused on the innovative development, production, promotion and deployment of hydrogen fuels and fuel cells to meet the pressing demand for energy storage solutions.NEESC supports the electrochemical energy storage cluster in the Northeast through business services that include training, counseling, mentoring, technology transfer/commercialization, export readiness, manufacturing assistance, market development, and incubator assistance. These activities will lead to increased US based market share, economic activity, productivity, technology deployment, and job creation. NEESC is supported by the US Small Business Administration and administered by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. (CCAT).

About Western New England University College of Engineering - www.wne.edu/

Western New England University, a private university in Springfield, MA, is renowned for their high quality teaching, as well as growing research program. The University is committed to being a leader regionally, and recognized nationally, in providing integrated professional and liberal learning. Drawing upon its core colleges, Arts and Sciences, Business, Engineering, Pharmacy, and Law, it strives to educate future leaders of these realms. Through local, national, and international partnerships, researchers at the University engage in both fundamental, as well as system level analysis of fuel cell and other electrochemical energy technologies. Recently, a collaboration with Lawrence Berkeley National Lab has allowed for faculty to further their understanding of material properties critical for next generation gas-diffusion media. Ongoing projects include, but are not limited to: fuel cell materials characterization, system modeling, cell diagnostics, neutron & x-ray based radiography/tomography, advanced flow-field design and hydrogen storage technology. Chemists and engineers are currently synthesizing Proton Exchange Membranes utilizing a technology pioneered in-house (i.e. pseudo-polyelectrolytes (pPE)), which may provide alternatives to Nafion in the future. Western New England strives to become a leader in energy based technologies research in the northeast corridor, and is seeking further collaborative partners.
