Motivation of the project
Currently, most of the world's battery production and knowledge is centered in Asia. However, there are new large-scale battery production facilities being established globally, often led by Asian suppliers. To compete with established turnkey suppliers and meet the growing demand for battery cell production, German and European companies need to combine their skills strategically. By collaborating and incorporating digital innovations, German mechanical and plant engineering can create a balance and enable adaptable, interconnected and flexible battery production.
