Publication of a proposal for an European Partnership for the Industrial Battery Value Chain

Batteries Partnership vision is to establish best in the world sustainable and circular European battery value chain to drive the transformation towards carbon-neutral society. The Partnership ambition is to prepare and equip Europe to manufacture and commercialise by 2030 the next-generation battery technologies, through results-oriented innovation programme, which will enable the rollout of the zero-emission mobility and renewable energy storage, thus directly contributing to the success of the European Green Deal.

Batteries play a central role in the EU’s ambition of becoming carbon-neutral by 2050, as it can act as both a type of energy storage and a clean energy technology. To further promote batteries and innovate the European battery value chain,  the European Technology and Innovation Platform (ETIP) Batteries Europe published on 10 June a proposal for a public-private partnership on battery research.

Driving research and innovation in batteries

The proposal is one of the candidate European Partnerships of Horizon Europe and the  aim is to deliver on global challenges and industrial modernisation through concerted research and innovation efforts. It involves a broad spectrum of actors like the European Commission and EU member states and associated countries, the private sector, foundations and other stakeholders.

ETIP Batteries Europe, together with EERA and BATTERY 2030+, have helped prepare the proposal for a European partnership  on batteries, specifically to equip Europe to commercialise and manufacture the next-generation batteries by 2030. .

As such, the proposal also lays the ground for building the best possible innovation ecosystem for a competitive, sustainable and circular European battery value chain of both the mobility and energy sectors, thereby helping to deliver on the objectives of the European Green Deal.
