Swedish Electric Transport Laboratory (SEEL)

The Swedish Electric Transport Laboratory (SEEL) is a test center for research and development in the field of electromobility, and is owned and run by Chalmers and RISE as a joint venture. SEEL will establish three facilities - in Gothenburg, Nykvarn and Borås.

The aim is to consolidate efficient knowledge development and improve the conditions for collaboration in the field of electrified transport in Sweden and Europe. Players in the automotive, aerospace and maritime sectors plus other companies developing technology in relevant areas will gain a common platform on which to meet, and will jointly benefit from the knowledge development and technology shift currently taking place. Researchers at colleges of higher education, universities and research institutes will at the same time gain access to advanced research infrastructure in the field of electromobility. The test bed will be operational by 2023.

The test center is part of a European investment in a value chain for batteries  The SEK 575m state aid from the Swedish Energy Agency for the electromobility lab SEEL is being provided within the parameters of an Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI), in order to create a European value chain for batteries. The ten-year project involves 17 participants from seven member states. It includes major European investments in the field of raw and advanced materials for batteries, battery cells & modules and entire battery systems, as well as in the use, recycling and refinement of recycled materials. The investment is being made within the parameters of the European Battery Alliance. (
