Welcome to Battery Technical Center

Focus on electric energy storage
Elektrische Energiespeicher und Antriebssysteme

Generation, storage and use of electric energy on a sustainable and cost-efficient basis for stationary and mobile applications are among the biggest global challenges for the next decades. The research and development of innovative electrical energy storage systems is carried out in different institutes at KIT covering the entire value chain in a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach. The objective is to develop industrially applicable, cost-efficient solutions for energy storage of the next generations.

Within the “Battery Technical Center”, the competencies of KIT along the value chain are pooled and an open technology platform for future electric energy storage systems is being set-up. The focus here is on the development and production of new materials and cells as well as the development of batteries and the integration to an overall system. Simultaneously, new manufacturing processes for the cost-efficient production of those batteries are being developed and demonstrated.

Kick-Off Barbecue at Battery Technical Center

The Battery Technical Center bundles works in the field of electrical energy storage and develops economically efficient energy storage solutions. The R&D activities are now carried out in the institutes IAM-ESS, ETI and wbk. For the foundation of the Battery Technical Center a Kick-Off Barbecue was held on 04.06.2018.
