In the field of battery research alternative concepts for lithium ion batteries are developed. For future generations of batteries the focus is on metal air batteries with significantly improved energy density. Alternatively non-Li intercalation type batteries are investigated. High energy densities can also be achieved in high temperature metal / metal oxide batteries based on the SOFC / SOE technology. Operating at elevated temperatures are also thin film all solid state batteries.
