Grenoble Battery Hub launched


On 24 November 2021, the ESRF, the European Synchrotron, the ILL, Institut Laue Langevin, and the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to create a hub for research on sustainable electrical energy storage, the “Grenoble Battery Hub”, based on the use of cutting-edge neutron and X-ray techniques and instruments.

The aim of this partnership bringing together ESRF, ILL and CEA is to accelerate research & innovation so that the next generation of batteries are more efficient, safer, cheaper and more sustainable. The Grenoble Battery Hub is linked to the European initiatives “BIGMAP”, co-funded by the European Union’s H2020 programme, and BATTERY 2030+. The next step for the Battery Hub is to open to the European battery R&D community to advance research in support of the European Green Deal, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the European Action Plan on Batteries.
