Since 1st of January 2011, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology bundles all work in the field of electric energy storage for mobile and stationary applications in the project “Competence E”. In Competence E, 26 institutes are working in the fields of chemistry, materials research, production and process engineering, electrical engineering, product development, vehicle systems, informatics and technological impact assessment. With this worldwide unique focus on the entire system “electric energy storage”, it will be possible to develop industrial applicable solutions for storage and driving systems. Thereby Competence E pursues an integrated approach from molecule, battery and electromotor with power electronics to the entire working electric power train. Simultaneous to the development and prototypical construction of new kinds of cells, batteries and drive trains, new manufacturing processes for the cost-efficient production of these batteries and E-drive systems are being researched, developed and prototypically presented. Therefore, the first exposable „research fab” will be constructed at KIT to close gaps along the innovation and value chain. The objective of Competence E is to develop battery systems within seven years that feature a gravimetric density of 250 Wh/kg, producible at the costs of 250€/kWh.
