Horizon 2020 – 1 May 2017

A collaboration between AquaBattery, Wetsus, FujiFilm Europe, CIRCE, Università degli studi di Palermo and SMEDE Pantelleria (Gruppo SO.FI.P) has attracted a Horizon-2020 subsidy from the European Commission (Competitive Low-Carbon Energy). Together we will work on developing a novel energy storage system with a higher energy and power density, and for that matter we will realize a demonstration battery on the island of Pantelleria, Italy. Although the project has started already, still a lot of R&D; is needed before operation of the battery can take place. At the end of 2018 we will start construction of the battery.
