Battery technologies

Berlin Brandenburg is one of the leading locations for R&D and applications in the battery sector.

Storage technologies are essential for the energy and mobility transition – which is why the State of Berlin is giving high priority to building a strong economic ecosystem for battery technologies. It supports investments in battery cell production as well as in upstream and downstream processes in the value chain.

With the Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg, Tesla has built its first production site in Germany here. International companies, for example BASF and Microvast, continue to prosper and invest. The region is also a hotspot for technology startups and the corporate landscape is developing rapidly.

The capital region is one of the leading research centers in Europe. The following institutions, among others, make important contributions in the field of battery storage:

Innovative companies

An innovation ecosystem has emerged in Berlin-Brandenburg in which companies benefit from each other and work together on future-oriented projects.

The battery value chain is wide-ranging. It ranges from raw materials and material development to processing technology, cathode production, cell production and module production. Test procedures, diverse applications and marketing, including second life and recycling, round off the spectrum. There is a wide range of know-how available in the region’s companies and institutes.

Selection of regional companies

Effective cooperation, networking and promotion
