Battery and Fuel Cell Technology
Batteries and Fuel Cells. In our Sunnyvale and Cambridge locations, we develop clean electrochemical technologies for electrified vehicles and products. Our team works with leading academic groups and startups to identify factors that improve battery and fuel-cell performance, reliability, and affordability.
Our research focuses on the application of physical models to enable reliable virtual design of electrochemical systems. We develop computational tools from the atom to the system scale to understand the behavior and interaction of energy materials. These materials are synthesized and optimized in our labs, then integrated into devices for in-house testing.
We also incorporate our electrochemical models into management system software that optimizes battery and fuel cell performance in real time without accelerating the aging process. Our algorithms are implemented in many Bosch products, from electric vehicles to power tools.
