Our research spans the entire battery value chain, from material characterization to recycling, from commercial cell analysis, modelling and control systems to life-cycle assessment and sustainable business models. Overall, six interdisciplinary focus fields will be the foundation for sustainable battery research at the UiA Battery Coast:

We develop and apply novel characterization methods to understand material and electrode properties for existing and future intercalation cell chemistries. Emphasis is put on the elucidation of performance/degradation correlations in (locally) harsh conditions.

The research activities focus on energy storage systems and their applications including second use batteries. Within these activities we concentrate on safety aspects, battery management systems, modelling and simulation, optimized operation (control), and eco-design of the storage systems.
