EIC Accelerator Challenge: Energy storage


This Challenge targets groundbreaking innovations in any field of technology that have a high potential to meet the following objectives:

  • to store electric and/or thermal energy at low cost, high density, high charging/discharging efficiency and enhanced durability.
  • to design technological approaches (chemical, electrical, electrochemical, mechanical, thermal) for energy storage at different scales (centralised at large industrial facilities premises or distributed and at small scale level – mobile electronics), duration (short – millisecond to day, medium – days to month and long term – months to seasons) and uses (from stationary to mobile).
  • to develop technologies that, without using critical raw materials or ensuring the maximisation of their recycle/reuse, minimise their carbon footprint measured through a life-cycle analysis (inc
