Energy storage is crucial for using solar or wind energy and for electromobility. In this Helmholtz-wide cooperation project new materials for electrochemical and thermal energy storage are developed. The project is coordinated by KIT, further research partners are: FZJ, DLR, HZG, HZB, HZDR, UFZ.

The research for electrochemical storage addresses three main topics:

  • nanostructured battery materials (nanomaterials and nanocomposites) with tailored properties,
  • solid state batteries with intrinsic safety as well as
  • 4th generation materials and systems, such as Li/S or Li/air, with high theoretical capacities.

In the project part thermal storage alternative storage concepts for latent heat storage, sorption heat storage and thermochemical storage are developed.
