UW-Madison cuts ribbon on Johnson Controls Advanced Systems Test Lab

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- A ribbon cutting Monday for a one-of-a-kind lab on the UW campus.

The university has partnered with Johnson Controls to create a test lab at the Wisconsin Energy Institute.

The equipment provided by Johnson Controls will help faculty and students create new battery technology to create cleaner, more efficient energy for the future.

Professor Tom Jahns with the UW College of Engineering says "Both in terms of intermittent and renewable energy and transportation these are both critical areas where batteries play  very important roles and we just feel so privileged to be able to have this state of the art facility."

Johnson Controls says they hope the new battery technology created at the lab will one day be used to power vehicles.
