New research initiative will power up Europe’s battery revolution

2019-02-28

A world moving from fossil fuels to renewable energy will rely more and more on energy storage and in particular on batteries. Better batteries can reduce the carbon footprint of the transport sector, stabilise the power grid, and much more. The Battery 2030+ large-scale research initiative will gather leading scientists in Europe, as well as the industry, to achieve a leap forward in battery science and technology.

In the Strategic Action Plan on Batteries published in May 2018, the European Commission has highlighted the need to support the European battery industry ecosystem with a long-term research initiative in future battery technologies. The Battery 2030+ project, which currently includes 17 partners in nine European countries, has been selected for a Coordination and Support Action grant under the Horizon 2020 programme. Over a period of one year (starting in March 2019), Battery 2030+ will lay the basis for a 10-year large-scale and long-term European research project.

The first Battery 2030+ project kicks off in March 2019.
