The creation of the website is part of a project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) entitled »BEMA2020 II - complementary research project for the battery materials for future electromotive, stationary and other industry-relevant applications (Battery 2020)« funding initiative. The work package for the creation of the website as part of the accompanying research project is intended, among other things, to provide a holistic overview of the battery industry.
Research into new battery technologies in the »Battery 2020« project has been supported by the BMBF with various funding measures since 2009. The scientific and industrial basis of battery research should be established and expanded with these measures in order to advance Germany on its way to becoming the leading supplier of key technologies for electromobility. The BMBF's »Battery 2020« funding measure is intended to consistently continue along this path. The aim of the funding measure is to consider material and process developments in a system context.
