Dependence and scarcity: the problem with batteries
The Battery Competence Cluster – NL is developing activitesto acquire the necessary knowledge and increase the competitive position of Dutch companies in the battery value chain. The Battery Competence Cluster – NL does this by:
The BCC - NL contributes to the development of a strong battery ecosystem.
By connecting companies in the Netherlands and linking them to parties abroad, challenges and project can be jointly tackled. Using knowledge and collaborations to create value will lead to new businesses and growth.
The BCC - NL is responsible for developing and implementing strategic plans for the Dutch battery sector.
By jointly working towards future goals from different perspectives, companies can focus on the right challenges, opportunities and to draw up joint technological roadmaps. The National Battery Systems Action Agenda is an example of this. By taking this approach, the participating parties will be informed of the latest technological developments and the OEMs and battery pack developers can incorporate these new technologies into their new systems.
The BCC - NL contributes to the realization of shared R&D facilities.
The development of Battery is complex. To prove certain combination of technologies work, it is important that these combinations are tested and that pilot productions are being set up. By investing in shared R&D facilities via the Battery Competence Cluster - NL, costs will be saved for a large number of companies in the Dutch battery chain. Such R&D facilities include test equipment, clean rooms, (pre-) pilot production lines and more.
