Fraunhofer Research Institution for Battery Cell Production FFB
Electrical power storage systems are of enormous importance for all sectors of the economy involved in the energy and mobility turnaround. Demand is not only in the automotive industry and other e-mobility applications, but also in the form of stationary storage units for building technology or in batteries for power tools or smart devices. According to a study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI, battery production capacities will quadruple from 124 gigawatt hours per year expected for the end of 2022 to more than 500 gigawatt hours in Europe alone by 2025, and even increase tenfold to up to 1.5 terawatt hours by 2030. The challenge now is to manage this growth successfully and to establish and expand efficient production facilities in Germany, including the necessary infrastructure.
The Fraunhofer Research Institution for Battery Cell Production FFB located in Münster, is therefore to become the center of development of a modern and scalable battery cell production for Germany and Europe.
