NASAbuildingNASA has issued a request for proposals to acquire new energy storage systems with a focus on cell chemistry and system-level battery technologies and post-Lithium battery devices.

“NASA is focusing on creating new advanced technologies that could lead to entirely new approaches for the energy needs of the agency’s future Earth and space missions,” Michael Gazarik, associate administrator for space technology, said Wednesday.

The RFP has categories for high specific energy system level concepts and very high specific energy devices.

NASA expects to choose four proposals and offer $250,000 in funding for each during phase one.

Gazarik said the challenge of advanced energy storage “offers new technology solutions that will address exploration and science needs while adding in an important and substantive way to America’s innovation economy.”
