Zn-Air Secondary Batteries based on innovative nanotechnology for efficient energy storage (ZAS)

The ZAS project is a consortium consisting of nine European partners joining forces to develop a cost efficient zinc-air secondary battery for efficient energy storage. The consortium represents the entire value chain from material developers and producers to battery manufacturer and end user. This combination provides a dynamic team with a keen awareness of the challenges related to turning laboratory scale developments into real innovation. The project is supported by the Horizon 2020 framework NMP program through a €6.6 million grant and will involve 650 person months of total work effort. The consortium consists of partners from five European countries; one university (DTU), four research institutes (SINTEF, CIDETEC, DLR and IEES), two SMEs (CERPOTECH and RMP) and two industrial companies (VMB and ABENGOA). The latest project meeting was hosted by ABENGOA in Seville, Spain, in November 2017.
