Guest Speaker: Professor Maximilian Fichtner The Excellence Cluster “Energy Storage Beyond Lithium” overview and highlights
The presentation will introduce the German Cluster of Excellence “POLiS” where 120 researchers are working on various topics of batteries based on Na, K, Mg, Ca, Zn, Al and Cl shuttle, in a period from 2019 to 2025. The Cluster is carried by Ulm University and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, with ZSW Ulm and University Giessen as partners.
The goal is to remove major roadblocks in the field and prepare the ground for a new battery ecosystem which is relying on more sustainable options. The work is focused on digging deep into the matter of the various battery chemistries but also to identify overarching principles which enable better understanding and progress in the field. The presentation will feature a selection of highlights which have been achieved in the first three years on monovalent and multivalent chemistries.
