THE BATTERY 2030+ ROADMAP HAS IDENTIFIED FIVE RESEARCH AREAS
Battery 2030+ brings together six research projects. BIG-MAP, the largest of them, consists of two parts BIG and MAP. BIG stands for Battery Interface Genome and MAP for Materials Acceleration Platform. The projects will develop physics-aware machine and deep learning models to examine and predict how battery materials and interfaces evolve in space and time.
The self-healing projects explore different methods that can autonomously or non-autonomously enhance life and capacity of the battery.
The sensing projects measuring sensor data like battery temperature, voltage, impedance, and pressure externally and internally, in order to improve and increase the safety and performance of batteries.
So far, manufacturability and recyclability have been a cross-functional part of all research projects in Battery 2030+. For new projects entering the initiative during 2024 this will still be true for some projects while others will be more directly focused on manufacturability or recyclability.
