The StoRIES project is born with the idea of addressing this challenge, bringing together a consortium of beneficiaries like facilities from the European Strategy Forum on Research Facilities (ESFRI), technology institutes, universities and industrial partners to jointly improve the economic performance of storage technologies. The main technological objectives of StoRIES are linked to the energy storage development by providing access to world-class research infrastructures and services, with a focus on improving materials for devices and optimizing hybrid energy systems with a view to make energy technologies more competitive and reducing costs. In addition, StoRIES  focuses on the analysis of socio-technical and environmental aspects of new developments and systems, in order to provide training and education on these issues.

The IAM-ESS ist particpating with its infrastructure Battery Technology Center, an interdisciplinary scientific platform at KIT that also provides a research factory for production of differently sized battery cells and a large test field for electrochemical testing.
