Alternative battery technologies


In the research field of alternative battery technologies, the use of less scarce and more cost-effective materials is being researched, which do not replace the lithium-ion battery, but are intended to cover application areas with different requirements. For example, in the home energy storage sector, a lower energy density is sufficient, but a longer service life is necessary.

„Our approaches are very diverse and range from 'A', like 'aluminum', to 'Z', like 'zinc'.“
