Flexibly adaptable cells are needed so that batteries can be fitted precisely even in convoluted spaces and can store more energy. KIT scientists, together with partners from academia, are now developing an agile production system with which battery cells can be manufactured with complete flexibility in terms of format, material, and number of units. The second stage of the project - AgiloBat2 - started in January and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with a total of 14.5 million euros.Press release
