Joint research platform for energy storage systems

The new Fraunhofer Project Centre for Energy Storage and Systems (ZESS) was inaugurated in February 2019. The purpose of the new project centre is to develop existing energy storage systems, both mobile and stationary, to the level of industrial maturity, and to demonstrate new solutions at a level of technological maturity. The future of numerous sectors of technology and industry hinges, directly or indirectly, on the development of powerful new energy storage systems. The coming generation of electric cars, for example, will require high-performance batteries. Likewise, stationary power storage facilities are needed to help cushion the variations in grid capacity that result from a reliance on fluctuating sources of renewable energy such as photovoltaic systems or wind turbines. The project centre is a joint initiative of the company’s various institutes in close cooperation with the Technische Universität Braunschweig.
