A reliable supply of energy, its efficient storage and sustainable use are key challenges for our present-day generation and those to come. The Fraunhofer ISC with its R&D centers and groups works to develop intelligent thermal management solutions, efficient energy storage options and energy converter systems. Their research is supported by process simulations, novel measurement techniques, advanced analyses and in-house expertise.

All about battery research

Development, testing and optimization of materials, components and processes for batteries

With more than 25 years of experience, the Fraunhofer R&D Center for Electromobility Bavaria (FZEB) offers B2B services for future lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technologies (polymer and solid state), advanced lead-acid (LAB) and high-energy batteries, and electrochromic systems. With more than 30 experts, it is one of the largest battery research groups in Germany. The R&D center is the successful extension of the Center for Applied Electrochemistry.
