RISE participation in Battery Sweden (BASE)

Battery Sweden (BASE) is a center funded by Vinnova from 2020-2030 and headed by Uppsala University. RISE activities within BASE, including scale-up, production, solid-state Li-battery processes and manufacturing technology.

The long-term vision of the Center is to address the energy storage challenges associated with the transition to a fossil-free society. The plan is to generate and spread knowledge and know-how by monitoring international activities in the field, by supporting companies dependent on this technology with a deeper understanding of the possibilities and limitations of energy storage, so that they can reap the full potential of advanced batteries in their products and services. 

RISE has many collaborations within BASE.

These include:

  • Toxicity and recyclability investigations 
  • Safety issues, flammability, and testing of thermal runaway 
  • Sensor applications to increase the understanding of performance and sustainability of batteries 
  • Production of materials on a larger scale 
  • Additive manufacturing 
  • Modeling of battery aging
  • Graphetization of bio-based hard carbon 
  • Electrolyte and binder investigations
