The RECYCALYSE Project organised an online joint workshop: Non-battery-based energy storage, on 15 September, 2021, in collaboration with three EU-funded projects working on sustainable solutions for energy storage. The participating initiatives, RECYCALYSE, AreNHa, NEXT AEC and, PROMETH2, are all funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
During the session, they presented their work to boost new technologies or improved materials that can be used as sustainable solutions for different energy storage needs. The aim of this event was to build a meeting point for stakeholders across Europe to discuss how to improve and increase the performance of the materials as well as how to reduce total costs with respect to the current technologies.
The workshop was divided into several blocks showcasing the objectives, scope, methodology, impacts, and preliminary results of each project. The four initiatives will help to boost the economic competitiveness of the European Union energy storage production. The technologies developed will also contribute to reduce or eliminate critical raw materials, thus decreasing CO2 emissions and reducing costs. In that way, one of the innovations behind will be to avoid dependence on materials imports in Europe, by implementing the recovered elements in the newly developed catalysts, thus contributing to a circular economy.
If you were not able to attend the live workshop session, we encourage you to watch the videos to learn more about these interesting projects.
