Cell supply crucial for electromobility and energy storage market

Lithium-ion technology has higher energy density and specific energy compared to other battery systems available today. The battery cell is the heart of the battery. Manufacturers, suppliers, machinery and plant manufacturers are fighting internationally for pole position in electromobility and stationary energy storage systems.
