Battery 2030+ - BATTERY 2030+ large-scale research initiative: At the heart of a connected green society

BATTERY 2030+ is the large-scale and long-term European research initiative with the vision to invent the sustainable batteries of the future and enable Europe to reach the goals envisaged in the European Green Deal.

The overall aim of the BATTERY 2030+ research initiative is to invent the batteries of the future by providing breakthrough technologies across the entire value chain and enable long-term European leadership in both existing markets (road transport, stationary energy storage) and future emerging applications (robotics, aerospace, medical devices, internet of things). 

What kind of batteries will we see in the future? Almost all technical roadmaps for batteries outline different generations of battery chemistries, describing their expected energy storage performance and time to market. These predictions are all moving targets.  

The BATTERY 2030+ initiative on the other hand suggests long-term research directions based on a “chemistry neutral approach”. The research actions proposed will have an impact on several different kinds of high-performance battery chemistries, in order to reach their full potentials by closing the gap between their respective practical capacity and theoretical limit.  

The ideas that the BATTERY 2030+ initiative proposes will allow Europe to surpass the ambitious battery performance targets agreed upon in the SET-plan as well as giving industry a competitive edge on future sustainable battery technologies. In addition, BATTERY 2030+ builds the long-term visionary roadmap and feeds this into the research and innovation efforts within Batteries Europe – the European Technology and Innovation Platform (ETIP).
