Supercharging the next generation of battery innovation
Accessing cutting-edge technological support will enable Europe’s battery sector to meet industry demand for enhanced performance and greater energy efficiencies.
While most vehicle batteries in circulation today are still based on lead-acid technology – first developed back in 1859 – lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are becoming increasingly popular. Key benefits include higher energy density, increased voltage capacity and longer life. “The market for Li-ion is growing at an incredible 25 % a year,” notes TEESMAT (Open Innovation Test Bed for Electrochemical Energy Storage Materials) project coordinator Fabien Perdu from the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission. “An industrial revolution is going on. Li-ion batteries are typically used in consumer electronics, but they are also becoming a key driver in electric mobility.”
