BaSta – Batterie: Stationär in Sachsen
This three-year project focuses on the material research into the low temperature sodium-sulfur battery and the corresponding manufacturing technology. Furthermore design, prototype setup and the testing of sodium-sulfur storage modules for highly capacitive battery storage systems will be of particular interest.
The successful project result will present a novel stationary battery type for the storage of electric energy. Due to its specific storage capacity, high security and life time as well as its moderate costs, this will help to improve the social acceptance of Germany’s energy policy. The abundant natural resources of sodium and sulfur are additional supporting features required to fulfill the pressing demand for more energy.
