The battery is the centrepiece of modern electric drive concepts. Therefore, great efforts are being made worldwide to make this electric energy storage unit as efficient, powerful, cost-effective and safe as possible.
Battery research plays a central role for the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology. The scientists are pursuing a holistic research and development approach that improves the key performance indicators of the battery itself while also optimising its integration into the vehicle. The entire development process from material optimisation to battery testing through to system design is covered.

"AIT is one of the few institutions worldwide to cover the entire battery research and production value chain.
With our dry room and the state-of-the-art research pilot facility we can prototype lithium ion pouch cells with a focus on industrially relevant production. This bridges the gap between science and market application."
