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.

Girl's Day 2019
Battery Technical Center at Girls' Day

Under the topic Battery empty?! Research so that you never run out of energy… the Battery Technical Center is taking part in this year's Girls' Day on 28.03.2019. Schoolgirls from the 8th grade on get an insight into the structure of batteries and how they work. In our battery laboratory they will build and test a battery cell by their own, and build their own battery module with the help of our robot.

Akku leer?! Forschung, damit dir nie der Saft ausgeht…

From 12th till 14th March 2019, KIT is partner at the ENERGY STORAGE EUROPE in Düsseldorf and the Institute of Electrical Engineering will participate with one presentation with the topic “Home-Storage efficiency – clear and consistent testings“. Simultaneously, the International Energy Storage Conference (IRES) takes place, where a poster will be presented by the Institute of Electrical Engineering.
