Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW)

Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg – Production Research Department (ECP)

The ZSW is an industry-oriented, internationally leading research institute in the field of battery research. Especially with its established research platform for the industrial production of large-format lithium-ion cells (FPL), the ZSW contributes significantly in the area of technology transfer from research to industry. In particular, the FPL offers a process-reliable test environment to conduct research on the mutual influence of cell chemistry, cell design and manufacturing technology with regard to quality, safety and manufacturing costs. Questions about inline sensor technology, manufacturing tolerances or cost-efficient processes can be evaluated under close-to-production conditions. In addition, the FPL allows for verification of advanced cell chemistries trough prototyping and small pre-production runs.
