A roadmap for transforming research to invent the batteries of the future designed the European large scale research initiative BATTERY 2030+

Abstract : This roadmap presents the transformational research ideas proposed by "BATTERY 2030+", the European large-scale research initiative for future battery chemistries. In this paper we outline a "chemistry-neutral" roadmap to advance battery research, particularly at low TRL, with a time horizon of about ten years. The roadmap is centered around six themes: 1) accelerated materials discovery platform, 2) battery interface genome, with the integration of smart functionalities such as 3) sensoring and 4) self-healing processes. Beyond chemistry related aspects we also include crosscutting research regarding 5) manufacturability and 6) recyclability. This roadmap should be seen as an important enabling complement to the many global battery roadmaps which focus on expected ultrahigh battery performance, especially for the future of transports. Batteries are used in many other applications and are considered to be one of Europe's key technologies necessary to reach the climate goals. Currently the market is dominated by lithium-ion batteries, which performs well in most applications, but despite new generations coming in near time, soon will approach their performance limits. Without major breakthroughs, battery performance and production requirements will not be sufficient to enable the building of a climate-neutral society. Through our "chemistry neutral" approach we aim to create a generic toolbox transforming the way we develop and design batteries, which later benefit into the development of specific battery chemistries and technologies. The goal is to integrate modeling and high-through-put experimental results in a closed integrated loop and manage the large amounts of data we generate to learn more about complex processes on different levels affecting the function of a battery cell or a battery system. Based on this we suggest concrete actions with the ambition to be part of and support the implementation of the European Green Deal, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the European Strategic Action plan on Batteries and the Strategic Energy Technology Plan.
