Center Battery Research

Technologies for new energy storage systems

© Photo Secret Side –

Research in the areas of electromobility as well as stationary energy systems is a central theme at IWS in Dresden. Important contributions can be provided to battery fabrication processes based on the numerous IWS manufacturing process technology development areas. To be in the position to offer solution to industry, the IWS is establishing a center for battery research.

The EU and the Free State of Saxony fund this project with 4 million Euros. IWS internal and Fraunhofer funds add 3 million. BMBF project funds contributed another 1 million Euros for equipment. This offers the best conditions to work on numerous public industry projects of which are listing here below.
