Battery Innovation Center to Become First Commercial Testing Facility for OpenFMB

The BIC has announced its commitment in becoming the first commercially accredited test laboratory for grid devices, systems, and applications to certify interoperability conformance to the Open Field Message Bus (OpenFMB) framework standard.

The OpenFMB interoperability framework is a standard ratified in 2016 by the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB).  It enables traditional grid-edge operational assets and distributed energy resources – such as solar photovoltaics, energy storage systems, and microgrids – to quickly and securely communicate with each other in the field regardless of each device’s local communications protocols.

Learn how Lithium-ion Battery manufacturers can prevent battery fires.

Batteries pose chemical and physical hazards. Batteries can fail for many
reasons including short-circuiting, overcharging, or overheating. For Li-ion batteries, these failures can lead to dangerous propagations resulting in highly dangerous thermal runaway. To prevent battery fires, we must aim to understand how to prevent thermal
runaways. Quality control at every stage of battery manufacturing is an effective way to eliminate most defects and it is the responsibility of battery manufacturers to make the existing technology as safe as possible.

Indiana Electric Vehicle Products Commission Annual Report

The Indiana Electric Vehicle Products Commission’s first report on Indiana’s EV products landscape puts our Hoosier state at the front of the pack for engaging industry.

The Automotive Industry initiated the beginning of a technical revolution in Indiana by cultivating research and pioneering products over the course of many decades. Although the local
automotive industry boom has grown immensely recently, Hoosier leaders have been developing the culture of innovation tediously with substantial attention to detail and rising trends.
