Chicago is quickly becoming one of the leading cities in cleantech technology research. Argonne National Laboratory, just ouside the city, was recently selected to host the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR). The goal of this center is to improve battery technologies, making them higher performance while at the same time reducing their cost.
