Battery testing center headed to Rochester


A Pennsylvania energy storage testing lab is relocating to the Eastman Buisness Park.

DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability, a global energy consulting company that specializes in testing, inspection, and certification, will work with the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium to relocate its lab, says a press release from Governor Andrew Cuomo's office. 

NY-BEST is establishing a battery testing and commercialization center at the business park and DNV KEMA's lab will be part of the facility. The project represents a $23 million investment, says the press release. The company is investing up to $16 million while NY-BEST is putting up $6.9 million in state grant funds, which will be used for building improvements and equipment purchasing, says the release.
