Computer-Aided Engineering for Electric Drive Vehicle Batteries (CAEBAT)

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recently awarded three industry teams, after a competitive procurement process, a total of $7 million for the development of computer-aided software design tools to help produce the next generation of electric drive vehicle (EDV) batteries.

These projects support DOE’s Computer-Aided Engineering for Electric Drive Vehicle Batteries (CAEBAT) program. The objective is to help the automotive and battery industries design and develop a wide array of advanced EDV batteries more quickly, resulting in less expensive batteries.

EDVs — hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and electric vehicles — have the potential to significantly reduce petroleum consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

Project goals for the selected teams include:

• Developing battery engineering tools to design cells and battery packs
• Shortening the battery prototyping and manufacturing processes
• Improving overall battery performance, safety, and battery life
• Reducing battery costs.
