DNV GL’s BEST Test & Commercialization Center (BEST T&CC) helps promote a clean energy society through innovative battery and energy storage technology (BEST). Located at Rochester, New York, it is the result of a collaboration with the New York BEST Consortium. The center’s unique capabilities help bring emerging technologies to the commercial market and offer companies essential product testing and qualification at a reasonable cost.
The BEST T&CC brings together over 250 years of combined DNV GL and NY BEST team experience, including electrical testing of T&D equipment, battery and energy storage R&D, consultancy and testing. This allows us to provide unequaled, strictly independent and impartial performance testing in the lab and in the field.
Streamlining technology development
The BEST T&CC is a unique asset for anyone involved in developing and commercializing new battery and energy storage solutions. It gives you access to high-quality testing facilities without burdening your own labs or having to make large capital investments. Moreover, by drawing on the in-depth know-how of our expert staff, you can speed up testing and hence technology development.
BEST T&CC’s unique capabilities allow testing of the complete range of battery and energy storage technologies: from single cells to complete systems with cycle capacities up to 240 kW. Systems up to 2 MW can be tested in conjunction with the KEMA Powertest lab in Chalfont, Pennsylvania.
The collaboration between DNV GL and NY BEST unites two organisations with complementary expertise and a shared vision of a safe and reliable low-carbon energy future.
Experts in testing and verification of quality requirements, DNV GL helps customers with their energy assets, from development through to maintenance, in the cleanest, safest and most cost-efficient way. NY BEST is a consortium of more than 125 manufacturers, suppliers, universities, utilities and engineering firms. It aims to enhance the energy storage industry through a cooperative alliance that leverages local capabilities, advocates industry policies, and accelerates commercialization of products from R&D to widespread deployment.
