At the forefront of EUROBAT’s Manifesto lies the Innovation Pillar, steering the European battery industry towards a globally competitive and sustainable future. Let’s explore the key aspects shaping this transformative journey:
Recognising the Enabling Potential of Batteries:
Batteries are pivotal in Europe’s journey towards decarbonisation and net-zero neutrality. With a focus on policy fields like mobility and energy, EUROBAT advocates for comprehensive measures to shape the future of mobility systems.
Role of Battery Energy Storage:
As Europe faces challenges in energy reliance, battery energy storage takes the spotlight. EUROBAT stresses the critical role of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) in enhancing grid resilience, balancing supply and demand, and facilitating the transition to renewable energy.
Contribution of Battery Innovation:
Innovation is the heartbeat of a globally competitive European battery industry. The Battery Innovation Roadmap 2030 outlines the enormous potential of lead and lithium. EUROBAT calls for prioritised research and development funding, fostering collaboration and streamlined regulatory frameworks to integrate advanced battery technologies seamlessly.
Role of Battery Standards:
Standards play a pivotal role in implementing secondary legislation, ensuring reliability, safety, and sustainability. EUROBAT emphasises the imperative of a strong standardisation base across all battery technologies, aligning with the new Battery Regulation.
