About

Project

TEMPEST develops and matures a new generation of safe-by-design, recyclable, high performance, and lightweight batteries by providing a holistic approach to next-generation lithium battery technologies, evaluating solutions for batteries, which will strengthen the overall positioning of Europe in the global batteries market, and increase its independence on outside markets.

TEMPEST brings advanced, module-free battery systems, optimised using artificial intelligence algorithms through three different demonstrator battery types (compact, large-scale, and stationary).

Objectives

  1. Develop next generation cell technologies for multiple demonstrators and applications.
  2. Develop new architectures and designs for improved safety, thermal management, and performance.
  3. Improve the circularity of batteries through improved design and recycling methods.
  4. Develop and implement new models for the optimisation of batteries.
  5. Develop sustainable value chains and exploitation strategies.
