Battery 2030+ has launched its roadmap with three large research themes and six research areas that are needed to invent the sustainable batteries of the future. Batteries Europe strongly supports and fosters synergies with this initiative.
The roadmap suggests research actions to radically transform the way we discover, develop, and design ultra-high-performance, durable, safe, sustainable, and affordable batteries for use in real applications. The purpose is to make a collective European research effort to support the urgent need to establish European battery cell manufacturing.
The long-term research directions are based on a “chemistry neutral approach” that will allow Europe to reach beyond the ambitious battery performance targets, along the full battery value chain, agreed upon in the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) proposed by the European Commission.
Based on a Europe-wide consultation process, the BATTERY 2030+ roadmap presents three large research themes and six research areas that are needed to invent the sustainable batteries of the future.
The three themes are:
I) Accelerated discovery of battery interfaces and materials
- Battery interface genome (BIG)
- Materials acceleration platform (MAP)
II) Integration of smart functionalitites
III) Cross-cutting areas
