Hitachi, Ltd. and Johnson Controls, Inc. have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on several fronts in the field of advanced energy storage. (Earlier post.)

The companies will study opportunities for collaboration in the fields of motive and non-motive advanced energy storage including Lithium-ion batteries, exploring potential cooperation across a wide span of initiatives including R&D, procurement, production, marketing, sales and standardization.

To truly build a successful advanced energy storage industry, it’s going to require significant ongoing efforts across the entire spectrum of the business, including everything from research and development through commercialization capabilities. By combining our complementary strengths, Hitachi and Johnson Controls have a great opportunity help shape and lead the development of this emerging industry.

—Alex Molinaroli, president for Johnson Controls Power Solutions

Johnson Controls’ Power Solutions business is the world’s leading supplier of automotive batteries.

In 2000, the Hitachi Group began mass-producing lithium-ion automotive batteries. As of October 2010, it has produced more than 1,200,000 cells, mainly for commercial hybrid buses and trucks, as well as for railway cars and other applications.
