Department for Electrical Energy Storage Systems
Since 2010, Fraunhofer IFAM's department for Electrical Energy Storage has been doing research on materials science and manufacturing technology solutions for the next generation of batteries. To this end, state-of-the-art battery and testing laboratories were implemented at Oldenburg's technology and start-up center, "Technologie- und Gründerzentrum Oldenburg" (TGO).
TGO is located next to EWE's "Next Energy" research center and Oldenburg Unversity, allowing joint research and adressing key challenges in a broad field such as electro-chemical energy storage systems. Financially supported by the state of Lower Saxony, the department is geared to grow to about 30 scientists and technicians.
