BATERIAS 2030 Project: outcome and results presented next week at INL

June 3, 2022

Baterias 2030 presents next Tuesday, June 7th, at the INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory in Braga, the outcomes and results of the mobilizing project. This public presentation will serve two essential purposes: to reveal the scientific and technological advances of the project in the two years of activity, related to new technologies storage, management and distribution of energy and to present the demonstrators that will be installed in the Living Lab to be set in downtown Braga at gnration.

Pedro Salomé, the scientific Coordinator of the Project, highlights that “the project has been creating an important ecosystem in the battery sector by gathering 23 partners all working towards the integration of batteries in the urban energy system. And although the project started to be sketched back in 2019, the partners were already considering some energy trends that at the time were discarded but that currently are provided as the future. Examples are the energy communities, the production of hydrogen for long term energy storage, the use of gen3 Li batteries, lithium recycling, the use of second-life batteries, use of photovoltaics in buildings/facades, just to give some examples. Such early vision demonstrates that when the industry works closely with research and technology organizations, society’s technological development requirements can be developed early and on time for its deployment”.

Pedro feels quite proud to have such a diverse group of stakeholders developing such diverse technologies under the same umbrella and invites everyone to visit our living laboratory in downtown Braga at gnration when it opens in one year’s time.

This is the first large-scale initiative that integrates entities from the scientific and technological system with the national battery industry in a consortium, constituting a milestone in the development of new disruptive technologies in this area.

The success of this project is due to the close collaboration of several dstgroup companies such as dstsolar, innovationpoint, bysteel fs and dst sa together with INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, WATT-IS, Efacec, Addvolt, Secil, CDC New Cap, Visblue, FEUP – Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, IST – Instituto Superior Técnico, CeNTI – Centro de Nanotecnologia e Materiais Técnicos, Funcionais e Inteligentes, LNEG – Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia e Geologia, CEiiA, INESC-TEC, INESC-MN, Universidade do Minho, Omniflow, 3Drivers, ZEEV and Amnis Pura.
