Open Source Software Released

April 2021

Software package underlying BatteryArchive.org now available on github. The system is built around Redash, a robust open-source extract-transform-load engine. The present release also includes starter queries, a database, schema, and a data importer, and guidance on connecting to Jupyter Notebook.

Published Preprint about Site Software

March 2021

Published a preprint that describes the architecture of Battery Archive. We are planning to release the software soon.
Datasets from Purdue, Underwriters Labs, RWTH Aachen, NASA, UC Berkeley, and University College London are in the pipeline.

Site Continues Expanding

December 2020

Datasets from Oxford and CALCE have been uploaded and content from other institutions is in the pipeline. We’ve added pages to explain the Metadata used for tagging in the database, address FAQ, and highlight other excellent Resources for battery data analysis.

BatteryArchive.org Publicly Launched

September 2, 2020

Site is launched publicly with datasets from Hawai’i Natural Energy Institute and Sandia National Labs. Data sets from other institutions are in the pipeline. Initial capabilities include filtering by basic metadata and visualization of efficiencies, capacity/energy, and voltage curves over time. The ability to model the data is currently being beta-tested.

Site Prototype Completed

March 2020

V0 prototype completed and tested internally with database and UX support from Sandia National Labs.

Site Development Begins

October 2019

Development of batteryarchive.org begins following the DOE Office of Electricity Energy Storage Program peer review. Presentations and conversations crystallize gaps in open battery data sharing and the ability to easily compare data between studies.
