Funding millions for German battery projects-battery

For the Battery projects of the companies Elringklinger (Dettingen) and Manz (Reutlingen), the Federal Ministry of Economics (BMWi) has passed two symbolic decision documents yesterday Tuesday. The BMWI and the Land Baden-Wurttemberg promote the project of ElringKlinger with around 33.7 million euros, which from manz with around 71.3 million euros.

As evidenced by a communication of the Ministry, Manz intends to develop highly efficient machines and processes for fully automated production of lithium-ion batteries of generations 3 and 4 in his project “Lithium Battery Dark of the Future” project “. Processes and systems are therefore based on a new, digitized and cost-effective business model.

ElringKlinger gets grants for the development and industrialization of an innovative cell housing design, which is intended to contribute to a competitive, European value chain for batteries. Due to the novel design, components and complexity would also be reduced as the consumption of energy-intensive raw materials such as aluminum and copper.

Since the beginning of 2019, BMWi has been pursuing two IPCei major projects with the European Commission and other EU Member States (Important Projects of Common European Interest) to research and development in battery cell production. For funding, the BMWI provides a total of up to three billion euros. German companies play after ministry information in both projects wearing roles. In total, in both major projects alone, in Germany alone, 15 funded companies would initiate innovations with investments of more than 13 billion euros. Distributed over all the projects, several thousand qualified jobs in the field of environmentally friendly added value creation.

From the first battery IPCEI, four projects approved by the EU Commission are launched, from the second IPcei five. The further German IPcei projects would also be presented in the coming weeks the benefits, it means from the Ministry.

State Secretary Tomas Meib said, with the projects of ElringKlinger and Manz, basic building blocks of the battery industry would crucially progressively pretended and doors to new business areas. Baden-Wurttemberg’s Minister of Economics Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut reaffirmed the goal of using around 30 percent of the global demand for battery cells from German and European production by 2030.
