Smart Regions: “Batteries for the Future” develops batteries which can boost the energy transition!

Additional tools


At the University of Jena in Germany, the Batteries for the Future project, which is supported by the European Regional Development Fund, is developing batteries which are buffering electricity produced from renewable energy sources.

These batteries are containing organic polymers that can cope with the fluctuations that result in renewable energy generation due to changing weather conditions. The batteries can store almost as much energy per kgs as a lithium battery. However, they are made of materials, which are easily available in Europe.

The batteries can make an important contribution in the energy transition from fossil energy sources to renewable energy sources. They also contribute to make Europe more independent and resilient in its energy supply.
