Transition to renewable energy sources (RES) is a critical step to slow down the climate changes, to overcome the energy crisis and to ensure energy independence between different regions of the world. Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are currently seen as important technological enablers for increasing the absorption of RES into the electric grid. However, improvements in their performance, cost competitiveness and sustainability should be achieved. For EU, the complete batteries value chain and life cycle has to be considered, from access to raw material, over innovative advanced materials to modelling, production, recycling, second life, life cycle and environmental assessments.


LOLABAT's 17 stakeholders aim to develop a new promising battery chemistry, RNZB (rechargeable NiZn Battery). The RNZB presented and developed during LOLABAT will have energy and power densities both the highest just after Li-ion batteries, cost the lowest just after the Lead-acid battery, while profiting from abundant and available raw materials, non-toxic elements, high safety, low risk of thermal runaway, limited environmental impact and high recycling potential.

The ambitions (2024 and after) of LOLABAT are: further increase of the cycle life of NiZn batteries (to at least 4000 cycles at 100% DoD by the end of project), development of NiZn for grid applications and its preparation for a production in Europe, by increasing its TRL via upscaling of capacity, design and integration of BMS and sensors built up in battery packs, testing and demonstration in stationary energy storage applications via six use cases in utility grid and industrial sites, its preparation for a future industrialisation by realisation of life cycle and life cycle cost analyses, recycling studies, assessment of norms, standards and grid compliancy, realisation of business model and market studies and finally an extensive dissemination and communication of the project results and NiZn technology.
