Why the lab is worth the visit
The Testbeds is not just a technical lab…it’s an ecosystem that’s focused on accelerating the arrival of next gen. clean energy solutions. 
Come to hear more about the different ways the Testbeds have worked with different local utilities on everything from MicroGrid power systems planning to innovative grid-scale battery deployment evaluations.

Join ELPN members for lunch and a tour of the Washington Clean Energy Testbeds.  Operated by the University of Washington Clean Energy Institute, the Testbeds are a 15,000 square foot laboratory and collaborative workspace that enables start-ups and established businesses open access to state-of-the art R&D facilities. The Testbeds provide access to the instrumentation, training, and expertise necessary to scale next-generation clean energy devices and systems.  The Washington Clean Energy Testbeds is a single-stop venue that offers open access to advanced capabilities for prototyping, testing, and demonstrating technology.  The Testbeds are focused on scalable ultra-low-cost manufacturing of solar cells and electronic devices, next-generation battery devices and controls, and power system integration software and hardware challenges.  The Scale-Up & Characterization and Systems Integration Testbeds are located in a state-of-the-art facility near UW’s Seattle Campus. The labs are custom built for the highest level of functionality possible.

Registration Details 
Check-in and a lunch buffet begin at 11:30 AM.  The tour and presentation will run from noon - 1:00 PM.  Advance registration and payment is required, and is being accepted now. Please assist our planning by registering early. League Members: $40; Non-League Members: $50. A late fee applies for registrations received after Tuesday, September 17.  Register below or call 425-498-8098.

The Testbeds facility has a small parking lot that’s directly accessible from Bowman Street,  so it’s likely that the first few that arrive will find parking spots at our location.  After those spots have been taken, on-street (non-metered) parking is available right in front of our building, and worst comes to worse, visitors can park in the University Village parking lot and walk over to our lab within 3-5 minutes.
