The storage of energy is one of the key challenges in the energy transition. Sustainable, high-density and flexible batteries are needed to balance the fluctuating production of renewable power with demand. The Twente Centre for Advanced Battery Technology brings together all battery research activities at the University of Twente. The goal is to advance research to realize breakthrough solutions for next-generation battery technology in a systemic approach and by addressing the complete battery value chain.
Our centre focuses on four different missions:
At the University of Twente extensive expertise in battery research is located in all faculties, MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, Digital Society Institute and Fraunhofer Project Center. A wide range of battery research and development projects are ongoing in collaboration with industry ranging from new fundamental storage concepts to solving applied industrial challenges. The University of Twente participates in the Battery Safety Test Center (BSTC), a state of art test- and certification center for batteries, focused on (fire) safety at the Twente Safety Campus.
As part of the Centre for Energy Innovation we provide a single point of contact for interested industrial companies and governmental organizations. Together with our partners we create a strong position in regional, national, European and global battery research collaborations.
