Study: Development perspectives for lithium-ion battery cell formats

Fraunhofer Istitute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI

The Fraunhofer Institutes ICT, IPA, ISI and the Fraunhofer research institution FFB have presented a study on the development of lithium-ion battery cell formats. It looks at the most important trends in battery chemistry, cell formats, cell production and safety and compares them with the requirements of various battery applications. Special attention is paid to the announcements of the automotive manufacturers, e.g. on large-format cells.

The study, which was developed in the context of the "FoFeBat" project, is an update of the Fraunhofer study "Entwicklungsperspektiven für Zellformate von Lithium-Ionen-Batterien in der Elektromobilität" published in 2017.

Solid-State Battery Roadmap 2035+

Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI

The Solid-State Battery Roadmap 2035+ considers a wide range of aspects from the individual materials, components and cells through to their utilization. It critically evaluates existing research as well as the latest findings and compares the development potential of solid-state batteries over the next ten years with that of established lithium-ion batteries. The roadmap demonstrates that solid-state batteries have a lot of potential, but will have to prove their commercial viability in the next five years.

Innovation Potential of Sodium-Ion Batteries: New Environment Report Analyzes Opportunities and Risks Along Possible Future Value Chains

Fraunhofer Research Institution for Battery Cell Production FFB

A new environmental report from Fraunhofer FFB focuses on sodium-ion batteries as an alternative battery technology. The researchers examine the technological characteristics of the battery as well as the activities in research and industry related to this technology - from the production of materials and cells to the emergence of user markets. The environmental report was prepared as part of the overall "FoFeBat" project funded by the BMBF.
