Launch of EBA250 - European Battery Alliance
May 17, 2022

How the European Battery Alliance is driving decarbonisation in Europe

The European Battery Alliance has been recognised as a blueprint for European industrial strategy. Now, EBA250 is calling for an upgrade to Europe’s battery chain ambitions. And it has a plan to deliver on them, as explained by Thore Sekkenes, EBA250 Programme Director at EIT InnoEnergy.

Launched in 2017 under the auspices of European Commission Vice President Maroš Šefčovič and driven by EIT InnoEnergy, the EBA’s mission is to create a competitive and sustainable battery cell manufacturing value chain in Europe. And our achievements to-date speak for themselves. But through the supply chain disruptions that were experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic and more recently the war in Ukraine, the need for resilient industrial value chains for the EU’s economic growth, decarbonisation and strategic autonomy has become ever more pressing. So while we have made significant progress, gaps remain for the full deployment of a resilient end-to-end battery industry. Addressing these will further support the EU’s decarbonisation and provide even more opportunities within the industry. Understand how this can be achieved by reading the full article published on Innovation News Network.
