The safe storage of electrical energy with high energy and power density is a challenge. Materials and process engineering aspects are in the foreground at Fraunhofer IFAM in order to develop solutions for electrical, chemical, and thermal energy storage systems. The focus is on Li-ion, solid-state, and metal/air batteries. Hydrogen and fuel cell technology as well as the efficient, highly dynamic storage of thermal energy represent further research areas.
In the following, we give you a first impression of our main research areas.
