Electrochemical Safety Research Institute Expands to Help Meet Global Challenges
Reflecting a strategic expansion plan that aims to address three of the world’s grand challenges, the Electrochemical Safety Research Institute (ESRI) team is now working out of a new laboratory in Houston that enables ESRI to deepen existing collaborations with area researchers.
“We’re excited to grow and build our partnerships in the Houston area research community, which is known for its energy technology innovation and leadership,” said Dr. Judy Jeevarajan, ESRI’s executive director. “When we coordinate with premier academic, business, and government agency partners, we strengthen our ability to advance safer energy storage through science.’’
UL Research Institutes (ULRI) is committed to addressing the global grand challenges of building a resilient and sustainable future, protecting individual and societal health in the 21st century, and mitigating as well as understanding the risks that digital systems pose. ESRI, one of ULRI’s five research institutes, focuses on renewable energy technologies designed to mitigate climate change and support the world’s transition to a clean energy future.
Joined by research and business partners, ESRI and UL enterprise leaders in November celebrated the launch of the new ESRI laboratory within the University of Houston Technology Bridge.
