ENERGY WITH A FUTURE
Renewable energies are increasingly affecting our everyday lives in so many areas, from the supply of power to all facets of mobility. The clean and effi cient conversion and storage of energy play a major role. Powerful, reliable and cost-efficient batteries, super capacitors and fuel cells are key technologies - for hybrid drives, battery electric cars (BEV), fuel cell-powered cars and innovative power supply units. ZSW has the technology for developing powerful batteries and fuel cells for future e-mobility: a test centre, technology for lithium-ion battery and fuel cell production, simulation and modelling systems, material synthesis, and analytic and inspection methods. This enables innovative technologies to be integrated fully developed into industry. Our cooperation partners come from the chemical, automobile and supplier, and power supply industries as well as various others. ZSW, with locations in Ulm, Widderstall and Stuttgart, is a leading international institute for photovoltaic, battery and fuel cell technology. Other research focuses on the generation of renewable fuels such as hydrogen and energy-related system analyses. ZSW successfully transfers research results into applications which are equally beneficial for both environment and economy.
