Battery 2030+ brings together the most important stakeholders in the field of European battery R&D to invent the sustainable batteries of the future and to work on concrete actions that support the implementation of the European Green Deal, the European Action Plan on Batteries, and the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (the SET Plan).

Battery 2030+ is not about developing a specific battery chemistry, but creating a generic toolbox for transforming the way we develop and design batteries. Thanks to this chemistry-neutral approach, Battery 2030+ will have an impact not only on current lithium-based battery chemistries, but also on post-lithium batteries, and still unknown future battery chemistries. Battery 2030+ addresses key challenges such as achieving ultra-high battery performance, enhancing the lifetime and safety of battery cells and systems, and ensuring a circular economy approach for the sustainable batteries of the future.

Through a European-wide consultation process and recent global battery research developments, the Battery 2030+ roadmap has identified the following main themes for long-term research below:

The themes are:
Accelerated discovery of battery interfaces and materials

  • Battery Interface Genome (BIG)
  • Materials Acceleration Platform (MAP)

Integration of smart functionalities

  • Sensing
  • Self-healing

Cross-cutting areas

  • Manufacturability 
  • Recyclability
