Energy Storage Systems


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.


Energy Storage Europe 2020 Commissioning of a Redox-Flow-Storage System New DC-charging System for e-bikes

Due to the current and growing infections, the Energy Storage 2020 will be postponed. A new date will be announced as soon as possible.


In order to simulate future network situations at the KIT in the real laboratory, a redox flow storage system has been installed and put into operation at the Battery Technical Center.


Within this project, founded by the BMWi, researchers at the Battery Technical Center are developing fast-charging batteries for e-bikes with the aim of significantly reducing charging times in collaboration with Coboc GmbH & Co. KG, which specializes in e-mobility.




KIT as Part of "Battery 2030+"    

In order to advance progress in battery science in Europe over the next 10 years, 17 partners from 9 EU countries have joined forces in the Battery 2030+ project.
