Through research in the field of electrochemical energy storage, the Fraunhofer Battery Alliance develops suitable technologies and conceptual solutions to application level, paying particular attention to their social, economic, and ecological impacts. Optimization is needed across a series of disciplines. The competences of the 21 members of the Fraunhofer Battery Alliance cover materials, cells and cell production, systems and integration, recycling, simulation and testing. The Fraunhofer Battery Alliance develops, optimizes, and characterizes customer-specific materials and manufacturing processes for batteries and develops complete battery systems for a range of applications. Therefore, the institutes operate special pilot plants for transferring results obtained in the laboratory up to industrial scale. Research and development work aims to increase the tolerance to external influences and improves the storage properties and intrinsic safety, paying attention to aspects of the cell manufacture. Emphasis is placed on lithium-ion systems, next-generation batteries, redox-flow batteries, and high-temperature storage devices.
The Fraunhofer FFB is being set up in Münster within the project “Forschungsfertigung Batteriezelle FoFeBat” which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with up to 500 million Euros. Within the project, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft cooperates with the RWTH Aachen University, the MEET Battery Research Center at the University of Münster and the Forschungszentrum Jülich in order to close the existing gap in the value chain for batteries and accumulators and helping to avoid dependency on other markets for energy storage technologies.
