Fraunhofer Battery Alliance
Energy storage systems are a key competence of almost all mobile and stationary electrically powered applications, while at the same time representing the most difficult system component to master. The Fraunhofer Battery Alliance addresses the challenges and problem areas along the battery cell production, cell design and their applications: 24 member institutes work together on the optimization of all individual steps along the chain. Not only parameters such as costs, energy and power density, cycle stability, temperature range and operational safety are taken into account, but also social, economic and ecological consequences. Not only primary, but also secondary (rechargeable) systems are evaluated and improved - from small-scale applications, such as head cells, to large stationary systems like redox flow batteries. The alliance aims to develop research in the field of electrochemical energy storage into a central business area.
As a participating institution in the Fraunhofer Battery Alliance, Fraunhofer FFB focuses on battery production research with high levels of technology maturity.
