Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) joint project R2RBattery

  • Tailored material systems and technologies for the roll-to-roll fabrication of electrochemical energy storage systems on flexible carriers – High-valent ions for the energy revolution
  • The global demand for energy storage grows with the development of renewable energies and the growing number of electrical vehicles and mobile devices. To cover the future demand and to meet the steadily increasing requirements, new storage concepts and material systems with highest energy densities and well available raw materials are necessary. For this, researchers of the IEP develop within the joint project R2RBattery novel post-lithium energy storage solutions.
