Research & Technology
As a globally recognized technology leader, VARTA's constant drive is to define the future of battery technology with innovative products to enable a more independent life.
The demand for mobile energy sources is becoming ever higher. Most applications are becoming smaller, lighter and smarter. At the same time, the resources used so far are becoming scarcer and alternative processes and materials have to be found. Through continuous investment in research and development, VARTA aims to maintain this balance between resource-saving products and technological progress, relying on a wide range of research projects aimed at sustainable marketable products.
VARTA AG conducts the main part of its research work at a total of three locations. Several safety and in-house chemical laboratories as well as prototype construction support the international VARTA development team in their daily work. The process development team takes over the realization of the projects and the implementation in highly automated large-scale production. The electronics and software of the battery packs are also developed in-house in order to react as quickly as possible to changing market requirements.
As an innovation leader, VARTA AG also works closely with research institutes, government institutions and universities.
