The primary goal is the development of a safe, environmentally benign, and cost effective electrochemical energy storage system with significantly improved specific energy. The research work focuses equally on the scientific background essential for the development of new technologies and on the analysis of ageing and safety relevant aspects of current industrial batteries. The investigated systems include both lithium-ion and post-lithium-ion batteries.
Relever les défis de l’avenir, pour le trafic routier suisse, va surtout demander des efforts de recherche. Aux grandes installations du PSI, des chimistes et des ingénieurs étudient comment rendre les propulsions des véhicules plus efficaces et moins polluantes.
Making Switzerland's road traffic fit for the future calls for research, first and foremost. In the large-scale research facilities of PSI, chemists and engineers are investigating how to improve the efficiency of motors and reduce their emissions.
