New Book: Handbook of Battery Materials, 2nd edition
 What's going on at Oak Ridge? Have a look...

Welcome to my Webpage. I am the Deputy Director for the Sustainable Transportation Program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Founding Director of the DOE Battery Manufacturing R&D Facility at ORNL, and Joint Faculty with the University of Tennessee's Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education.
In my program function, I am assisting the director in managing and further developing the ORNL Transportation Program with sponsors from DOE, DOT, and others. Read here what makes my work so much fun...
The Battery Manufacturing Facility is the nation's largest open access battery manufacturing facility coordinating R&D and user center access around research and development of new materials, next generation electrochemical couples, battery manufacturing, and integration with power electronics. The facility and its R&D portfolio supports ORNL's Sustainable Transportation and Advanced Manufacturing Program. Through this avenue, all our applied battery R&D in transportation and manufacturing is coordinated.
The facility itself is part of ORNL's manufacturing strategy, can be accessed through the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility User Program, and bridges ORNL's expertise from materials to manufacturing science and engineering.

Yours Claus Daniel
