Solid state batteries based on sodium and conductive ceramics have the potential to become the coast-effective and safest battery cells ever. They are particularly suitable for storing large quantities of solar and wind power in stationary batteries to cover costs, for hours or days. Since 2012, Fraunhofer IKTS has been working on reviving this mature but forgotten battery technology. Using state-of-the-art ceramic manufacturing processes and a battery design that meets today's requirements, storage systems are developed that can halve the price even further compared to today's lithium systems. The IKTS sodium battery is being developed in cooperation with German medium-sized companies. It can be made entirely from local raw materials and does not contain any problematic substances. In addition, the sodium battery is an extremely safe technology.
