Size & weight reduction of cell and packaging of batteries system, integrating lightweight and functional materials, innovative thermal management and safe and sustainable by design approach

👉 HORIZON-CL5-2024-D2-02-03

Widespread electrification of mobile applications is necessary to achieve the goals of the European Green Deal. A competitive European battery value chain will have to deliver highly performant and safe battery systems in order to enable the necessary uptake of electrified mobility applications.

This topic focuses on delivering a safe and sustainable by design approach for batteries reduced in size and weight which will deliver the performance necessary for mobile applications. The objective is to ruggedise energy storage packs by enlarging the environmental and operational conditions in which they can operate, while maintaining a high level of performance and achieving a reduction in the size and weight of the battery pack.


Successful projects are expected to deliver on both following points:

  • An increase of the net useful mass and volumetric energy density of the battery system between 10% and 30% compared to the state-of-the-art battery systems.
  • The improvement of the safety by design measures throughout the battery lifetime and during operation.


Projects are furthermore expected to deliver innovative thermal management to

  • Increase performance over the complete operational conditions
  • Enable fast charging requirements 10%-80% in 10 minutes maximum.

The solutions should be demonstrated and validated at application level and should comply with all relevant standards (performance and safety). They are also encouraged to contribute to standardisation of measures for safe thermal management.


Activities are expected to achieve TRL 6-7 by the end of the project.
