About the webinar
All-solid-state batteries are considered to be the critical future technology to address the energy demand of the rapidly evolving society. There are plenty of reports on the ASSB’s in the literature and many highly conductive solid electrolytes emerged in the past decade. But, the development of working prototype cell is still a challenge. Developing all-solid-state batteries with good rate capability and cycle life is one of the aims of present battery research. This webinar will be dealing with the general mechanism, critical challenges and strategies to make a better performing solid state batteries for the future.
Register today to know how you can be benefited from the solid-state battery webinar. The workshop will be organized on 11th November 2020 at 15.00-16.00 hrs (CET).

IKERLAN and the Belgian engineering company, ABEE, reach an agreement to work together in the field of electric mobility and stationary applications
The Basque technology center, IKERLAN, and the Belgian engineering company, Avesta Battery & Energy Engineering (ABEE), have reached an agreement to work together on the design and development of industrial solutions in the field of batteries and energy for the electromobility sector, as well as stationary applications. The alliance will allow both companies to jointly undertake industrial projects in the international market, mainly in Europe and the Middle East.
With this agreement, both organizations reinforce the close relationship they have had up to now in innovation and research projects, to respond to the needs of the industry.
IKERLAN is a leading international center for energy storage solutions and power electronics; it will also contribute its technological expertise in the field of digitalization, thus complementing ABEE’s technological capabilities.
IKERLAN’s CEO, Marcelino Caballero, stressed that “the agreement with ABEE will enable IKERLAN to tackle international markets and will be a lever for growth from a technological point of view”. Meanwhile, ABEE’s CEO, Prof. Dr. Noshin Omar, said that “the sum of ABEE’s and IKERLAN strengths will reinforce the position of both companies in Europe and the Middle East”.
IKERLAN, a member of BRTA, is a leading center in technology transfer and the contribution of competitive value to the company due, among other things, to the specialization of its researchers. It offers comprehensive solutions that combine different technological fields into three large areas: Electronics, Information and Communication Technologies (EICT), Energy and Power Electronics, and Advanced Manufacturing. In 2017, IKERLAN obtained certification, via AENOR, for the integrated management system (UNE-EN ISO 9001:2015 and UNE 166002:2014), which recognizes the excellence of the center in the field of R&D&I. It currently has a workforce of around 350 people.
Avesta Battery & Energy Engineering (ABEE) is a dynamic and specialized company in the field of battery and energy technologies for e-mobility and stationary applications located in Brussels, Belgium. Today ABEE is a fast-growing multicultural company consisting of team members from various nationalities. It is currently part of 10 running EU funded projects, several industrial projects with OEM’s and government institutions around the world (https://abeegroup.com/).
What does the SEABAT project entail?
The goal of the SEABAT-consortium is to develop a full-electric maritime hybrid concept based on:
September 11, 2020
A modular approach will reduce component costs (battery, convertor) so that unique ship designs can profit from economies of scale by using standardized low-cost modular components. The concept is suitable for future battery generations and high-power components that may have higher power densities or are based on different chemistries.
An optimal full-electric hybrid modular solution that minimizes the battery footprint and reduces the oversizing (from up to 10 times down to max. 2 times). It will validate as a 300-kWh system (full battery system test) at TRL 5, and virtually validate the solution for batteries of 1 MWh and above, using 300 kWh system P-HiLtests. The result will be a validated hybrid battery solution for capacities of 1 MWh and beyond, a roadmap for type approval and a strategy towards standardization for (among others) ferries and short sea shipping. The solution will deliver a 35-50% lower total cost of ownership (TCO) of maritime battery systems, including 15-30% lower CAPEX investment, 50% lower costs of integration at the shipyard and a 5%investment cost recuperation after the useful life in the vessel.
The role of ABEE in SEABAT:
Avesta Battery & Energy engineering (ABEE) will be involved in the definition of the hybrid battery system architecture concept and the set-up of the roadmap. Furthermore, ABEE will also play a big role in the modelling and sizing of the different battery system components, thermal management solution, TCO calculation, testing and validation, dissemination and at last the technical coordination.
Avesta Battery and Energy Engineering (ABEE) and company IMECAR Elektronik (IMECAR) agreed to set up a joint venture company with the headquarter in Belgium. The joint venture will cover the following activities:
" The joint forces of IMECAR and ABEE will focus on important technologies by sharing already existing IP and enhance further innovations including digitalization. This joint venture will strengthen the position of both parties in Europe and Middle East where ABEE is active and introduce cost-efficient, high performing products to the market. "
Prof. Noshin Omar
CEO of ABEE
" We are very delighted with this joint venture with ABEE. The new joint venture will enable us to offer a wide range of products and services to our customers. "
