EXPERTISE IN ELECTRIC MOBILITY - page 159

The points of focus of the IAM-ESS (Institute of
Applied Materials – Energy Storage Systems)
at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
are the development of new types of materials
for lithium-ion cells and the understanding of
material property relationships. The institute,
headed by Prof. Ehrenberg, has outstanding
and long-term expertise in the examination of
materials for energy storage systems. It has
all the necessary equipment required for this
in their labs and large-scale research facili-
ties. The cost-efficient use of energy storage
systems, in applications such as wind or so-
lar energy storage as well as electric mobili-
ty, can only be reached over a long operating
time. Accordingly, it is absolutely critical here
to precisely determine material-related degra-
dation mechanisms via in operando and post
mortem material analyses and then derive life-
span models from these. Based on this material
characterisation and respective life-span mod-
els of energy storage systems, projects are car-
ried out with partners from industry and other
research institutes.
Other points of interest at the IAM-ESS are the
development of new types of energy storage
systems, material development and characteri-
sation for redox flow systems, and the develop-
ment of powerful methods for in operando ma-
terial examinations of complete energy storage
units under real operating conditions.
