Solid-state battery cells (solid-state batteries) are being touted as the “next big thing” in electric vehicle technology because they offer the potential of particularly high energy density and high safety.

However, challenges remain in terms of their technical maturity, particularly in manufacturing, cost and performance. This seminar introduces the functioning of this battery cell technology. This is accompanied by an overview of the wide variety of subtypes of solid-state batteries with their individual characteristics.

As this technology is a completely new development, there are also hurdles for its use in battery systems. The costs, energy density and producibility in particular play a role here. Using concrete examples and a roadmap developed from research projects, input from cell manufacturers and internal assessments, possible initial use cases of this promising technology are recommended.

You will get answers to the following questions:

  • How do these solid-state batteries work?
  • How do these solid-state batteries work?
  • What are their application potentials?
  • What are the remaining obstacles to their widespread use?
  • What is the difference between solid state accumulators, solid state batteries, solid state batteries?
  • What materials are the electrolytes in solid-state batteries made of?

On the topic

Battery technology is currently experiencing a tremendous upswing due to its greatly reduced costs and large increase in performance, such as through increasing electromobility and the use of batteries for the energy transition. However, the demands are also increasing: greater energy density is desired for longer ranges for electric vehicles or particularly high safety with good performance for e.g. air taxis or longer battery life for smartwatches. Solid-state lithium-ion batteries, also called solid-state batteries, have the potential to meet these increasing demands. However, they do not yet have the same degree of maturity as conventional lithium-ion battery technology.

Objective The seminar is designed to help participants understand the functionality, application potential and challenges of solid-state batteries. Based on this, it is possible to make your own initial assessment of the usability of this technology for many application scenarios and its importance for your own company.

Circle of participants

The seminar is aimed at employees, decision-makers and managing directors as well as engineers and people in similar positions. The seminar is aimed at industries that use batteries or are active in the battery context. E.g. in electromobility and aviation: developers, manufacturing companies, recyclers, plant engineers etc. who are looking for a deeper understanding of the topic of solid-state batteries. This is a topic where many great goals and successes are reported in the media, but whose potential and basis can hardly be assessed without background knowledge. Prior knowledge of chemistry is not necessary, but a technical background is helpful.
