Laboratory for Reliable Battery-Assisted Energy Conversion (BAEW)

BAEW-LaborBatteries play a key role in electric mobility and energy supply as central issues of our time. In order to develop innovative battery systems new storage materials as well as the appropriate power electronics are needed. The Laboratory for Reliable Battery-Assisted Energy Conversion (BAEW, Labor für zuverlässige batteriegestützte Energiewandlung) is working closely on this in the fields of materials science and power electronics.

Researchers from different disciplines are conducting interdisciplinary research on sustainable storage materials such as silicon, which could drastically increase the capacity of batteries, and highly efficient semiconductor technologies such as silicon carbide or gallium nitride. Together they are optimising the efficiency and service life of individual components as well as the entire battery system. The laboratory equipment includes a facility for the development of particularly powerful battery cells as well as a climate chamber to test their use under extreme temperature and humidity conditions for solar and wind farms (onshore and offshore), electric vehicles, autonomous underwater vehicles or photovoltaic systems. The interdisciplinary laboratory at the Faculty of Engineering is also available for cooperation with companies and is firmly integrated into practical university teaching. Last but not least, by providing high-quality research and education it also strengthens the region of Schleswig-Holstein.

Since 1 January 2020, the project has been supported with around 2 million euros from the State Programme Economy 2014-2020 with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and with funds from the State of Schleswig-Holstein. The funds were approved on behalf of the state by the Wirtschaftsförderung und Technologietransfer Schleswig-Holstein GmbH (WTSH).
