Energy storage systems, especially accumulators, are the key technologies in the transition to a climate-neutral society. Forecasts assume an increasing share of electric vehicles in new vehicle sales. In order to enable this growth, fast charging of the battery is crucial. The more convenient, user-friendly and routine the use of accumulators becomes, the less doubts consumers have about battery electric vehicles (BEVs), e.g. Fear of insufficient range. Accordingly, shorter loading times would significantly increase the acceptance of the technology.

The focus of the NEWBIE project concept is the development of sustainable, safe, quickly rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (LIB) of the next generation with a long service life in electromobility applications. The goals of the NEWBIE project are: (1) a lower charging time, (2) material and cost savings through more accurate and reliable battery construction, and (3) energy and cost savings in manufacture. The NEWBIE project thus covers a number of critical points in the value chain of the battery and leads in a holistic approach to an improvement of the product and production: From the optimization of the cells, optimization of the cell manufacturing processes, improved cooling options in the module, resource-optimized materials From the production of the module to a recycling-optimized design, targeted solutions are combined in this program.
