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. If one assumes the entire vehicle market, there is an enormous market potential worldwide for electromobility and thus lithium-ion batteries. Access to powerful and cost-effective battery cells is crucial.
