Particularly in high energy and output ranges, the durability and reliability of a system must be high, placing significant technical demands on the batteries.
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. Here optimization is needed across a series of disciplines. The competences of the 20 members of the Fraunhofer Battery Alliance cover materials, cells and cell production, systems, 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 to industrial scale. Research and development work aims to increase the tolerance to external influences and improve the storage properties and intrinsic safety, paying attention to aspects of the cell manufacture. Emphasis is placed on lithium-ion systems, redox-flow batteries and high-temperature storage devices.

The Fraunhofer Research Fab Battery Cells, a new division of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, sets out to become the center in Germany and Europe for the development of modern and scalable battery cell production. The goal of the Research Fab Battery Cells is to enable manufacturers in Germany to produce battery cells economically and ecologically. The facilities will provide an infrastructure for companies and research facilities to test, implement and optimize the near-series production of new batteries. In collaboration with partners from Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, RWTH Aachen University and the Battery Research Center Münster Electrochemical Energy Technology (MEET) of the University of Münster, the Research Fab Battery Cells is thus closing the existing gap in the value chain for batteries and accumulators and helping to avoid dependency on other markets for energy storage technologies.
