IAM-ESS is part of the CELEST collaboration
The KIT, the Ulm University (UUlm) and the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research (ZSW) Baden-Württemberg aim at widening and strengthening their collaboration in the area of Electrochemical Energy Storage. The three institutions will co-operate on interdisciplinary research & development in this field ranging from basic research to technical applications and on the qualification of students. Founded on Jan 1, 2018, the Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage Ulm-Karlsruhe (CELEST) will plan, prepare and organize new joint endeavors in research, teaching, development and technology transfer. CELEST shall act as a platform to improve communication, and to co-ordinate and further develop joint activities with other universities and research institutions as well as the industry, at home and abroad.
The three research areas of CELEST are
- Lithium-ion batteries
- Post-lithium batteries
- Alternative electrochemical storage and conversion devices
