LEAPS Position paper for the European Battery 2030+ Roadmap is now published.
In a world of climate change, energy storage and distribution in the form of electrical power are a key challenge to be addressed and tackled in the ambitious transition of our societies towards fossil-free energy supplies. Batteries have been identified as one of the major technological challenges in the next decade as they are the core devices to make more efficient use of green energy. Next-generation energy storage must be based on a diversity of chemistries and architectures that allow batteries to be tailored for specific applications1,2. In turn, the knowledge-based research on new and better battery systems is of fundamental and strategic importance for Europe and the whole world. This research is going to be driven by the ultimate goal to achieve mass production of battery devices adapted to transport, urban and countryside living models, industrial value chain and services to the citizens including healthcare and ageing society. Below you find the position paper.
