Battery research

Without them, your smartphone wouldn't work and electric cars would be just an dream - we're talking about batteries, of course.

Batteries are at the heart of many devices that shape our everyday lives. Here at the Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) in Ulm, we have been meeting the challenges of battery research for more than 30 years. With our research and development, we are making an important contribution to the optimization of battery technologies - we are shaping the energy landscape of tomorrow.

More than 100 scientists at ZSW have been working on lithium-ion and post-lithium batteries for over 30 years. The institute pursues a holistic approach: From the production and characterization of active materials to the construction and testing of complete battery systems, to work on battery recycling. The ZSW Ulm offers partners from industry and science valuable services in various areas:
