Both projects are aligned with the objective of positioning Europe as a world leader in the development and production of sustainable batteries

With global battery demand expected to exceed 1700 GWh by 2025 (McKinsey), the BATTERY2030+ initiative, under the leadership of Professor Kristina Edström of Uppsala University, aims to promote the development of durable, safe and sustainable batteries throughout their life cycle.

CIDETEC Energy Storage has been involved in the BATTERY2030+ initiative since its launch in 2020. The BATTERY 2030+ initiative has just received more than 150 million euros from Horizon Europe, the European Union’s research programme, for a new package of cutting-edge projects with the aim of positioning Europe at the forefront of battery development and production worldwide. CIDETEC Energy Storage will participate in two of the new projects that have just been awarded: OPINCHARGE and PHOENIX. Together with others that have started this year, both projects will focus on sensors and self-repair mechanisms and electrochemical interfaces of batteries.

In the Phoenix project, coordinated by the Université Libre de Bruxelles (VUB), CIDETEC Energy Storage is working on the self-healing and sensorisation functionalities of batteries to increase safety and the precise monitoring of the cell’s status during its useful life.

In the OPINCHARGE project, coordinated by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), CIDETEC Energy Storage contributes its experience in modelling battery components, as well as in the development of sensors and electrodes to build prototypes of cells to study and optimise their properties.

CIDEETC Energy Storage, with more than 25 years of experience in battery research, puts its knowledge at the disposal of the international consortia participating in both projects.
