New UNIBAT Project to Investigate Phenomena in Solid-State Batteries
Jülich, 15 November 2018 – Solid-state batteries are a subject of great interest to researchers worldwide thanks to their outstanding properties. One question that has yet to be answered, however, is which materials are best suited to this type of battery. Scientists from Jülich’s Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK) aim to tackle this question in the analytical project UNIBAT ("Untersuchungen irreversibler Änderungen in Festkörper-Batterien") by investigating irreversible changes in solid-state batteries. Thomas Rachel MdB, Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister of Education and Research, officially launched the project today. It will receive funding of approximately € 2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) over the next three years.
