The New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST) and DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability have partnered to invest nearly $23 million to build and grow the new Battery and Energy Storage Technology (BEST) Testing and Commercialization Center in Rochester, N.Y.

Under the partnership agreement, DNV KEMA will provide investments of up to $16 million, including re-location of its existing energy storage testing operations from its laboratory facility in Pennsylvania to the new center in Rochester.

NY-BEST will provide the initial investment of $6.9 million from state grant funds into capital facility improvements and purchase of additional advanced testing equipment for the center.

The Test and Commercialization Center will provide a suite of test, validation and independent certification capabilities to help accelerate commercial deployment of energy storage technologies. Work is under way to construct the facility, and the center is slated to be complete by the fall and opened in December.
