The prevailing themes from last year will continue to be in vogue in 2023. Due to the political strategy of achieving peace through heavy weapons, the order situation for defense companies should improve even further. In addition, electric carmakers should continue to top the sales figures from the fiscal year ending in 2022. In terms of the efficiency of the battery, which is essential for electromobility, several companies worldwide are fighting for the crown. One German company has two hot irons in the fire.Read

Germany is known for its engineering. With Altech Advanced Materials, a new type of battery is paving its way that trumps all previous storage capacities. Together with Fraunhofer IKTS, the Heidelberg-based company is breaking new ground. BYD is also planning another battery plant, but in the USA. So far, the Chinese carmaker has held back in the consumer market there, preferring to focus on electric buses. But it will soon be adding another EV brand to its international portfolio. Apple will soon have to prepare itself. To comply with competition law, the EU demands that the Cupertino-based company open up its iPhone and iPad systems to other app stores. Find out what this means for sales here.Read

Who builds the best battery? Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, SFC Energy, IBU-tec - The entry is tempting!
Three years ago, the Chinese battery market leader CATL presented its cell-to-pack technology to the world for the first time. A new battery with this design is now said to give e-vehicles a range of 1,000 km and super-fast charging in just 10 minutes. According to CATL, the "Qilin" battery is more powerful than Tesla's 4680 cells. CATL plans to begin mass-producing the new battery in 2023. Whether the promised distance will be achieved, however, depends on the size of the installed battery and the vehicle's aerodynamics. In Europe and North America, research and development is also being carried out at full speed because the market for e-mobility still promises growth of over 30% per annum. What is the current status in Germany?Read

Electromobility is seen as having no alternative in the transformation of the transport sector. In 2021 alone, the number of new registrations and the market share of battery-powered vehicles more than doubled. In addition to the charging infrastructure, battery efficiency plays a decisive role in the spread of e-cars. However, a German company is poised to become the new standard on the market by developing a novel coating method. With the establishment of a joint venture, the Company is also researching a revolutionary battery technology that works without the critical raw material lithium.Read

Climate change, high gas and oil prices and the dependence on "difficult" energy suppliers: There are many reasons why hydrogen and electromobility are among the undisputed topics of the future. Accordingly, shares from these sectors are popular with investors. Plug Power is one of the favorites. The Americans have disappointed (again) with their latest quarterly figures, but the share price is still rising, and analysts are also positive. Battery specialist Altech Advanced Materials is also currently doing well. The cooperation with Fraunhofer in the field of solid-state batteries is taking shape. Varta, on the other hand, is currently working on bottoming out, but analysts advise selling.Read

Consulting firms like Roland Berger see the automotive industry undergoing a "triple transformation." No wonder large automotive groups are doing everything possible to become fit for the future. In addition to model electrification, digitization and greater sustainability are also playing a role in the battle for tomorrow's customers. Over the next three minutes, we explain what role technical innovations play in this.Read

The great race to catch up: Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, BASF - Who will build the best battery?
The first major city in Germany is getting serious. From February 2023, diesel-powered vehicles in the Euro 4 emissions class will no longer be allowed to be used within the inner ring in Munich. This is a big step, as around 140,000 motorists will be affected by this exclusion. In the future, these drivers will have to park their vehicles at the city limits in order to use public transportation to get to the city center. This will have far-reaching consequences for businesses and restaurants, as on-site purchases of a larger nature will become extremely inconvenient for the owners of these vehicles. Politicians are betting everything on e-mobility, but what about developing powerful and environmentally friendly batteries?Read

Is electric refueling getting more and more expensive? There are solutions! Mercedes-Benz, Altech Advanced Materials, Varta
Diesel is unlikely to cost less than EUR 2 per litre anytime soon. But at least modern combustion engines are considered efficient and flexible. Current media reports about electricity costs at charging stations for e-cars show a different picture. Some providers are shamelessly exploiting the shortage of charging stations and rising energy prices. Prices of EUR 0.70 per kilowatt hour are not uncommon at public charging stations. Those who fill up a lot in public areas often pay more for electromobility than for driving a combustion engine. But what does this mean for the trend toward electric driving?Read

Germany is the land of engineers, and German engineering is known worldwide for its outstanding quality. Altech Advanced Materials, for example, has launched a joint venture with the Fraunhofer Institute IKTS to commercialize even more powerful batteries than before. CERENERGY® batteries can be used for renewable energy storage as well as for industrial and private household applications. They are resource efficient and provide a reliable energy supply. German e-car enthusiasts can also look forward to the launch of three BYD models in Germany. And competitor Tesla is moving from Germany back to the US - President Biden has created a government lure...Read
