Project description

English EN

Improved battery technology for electric aircraft

Electric propulsion is a promising path to significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions of the aviation industry. For this, major improvements in battery technology will be needed to replace current engines on commercial aircraft. These mainly relate to greater energy storage capacity, higher power, reduced total mass and volume, as well as better thermal energy management. The LiBAT project will design and assemble a battery pack prototype with energy density that matches the state of the art. The aim is to manufacture a lightweight battery that is powerful enough to fly a commercial airplane.
