BMW Group Battery Cell Competence Center - Joerg Hoffmann, Head of Production Technology and Production Battery Cell and Fuel Ce

The BMW Group is building on its leading position in the world of electric mobility and has pooled its many years of experience with battery cells and extensive knowledge in the field in a new Competence Centre.

The purpose of the facility in Munich is to advance battery cell technology and carefully dissect the production processes.

“The new Battery Cell Competence Centre puts us in an enviable position,” said Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG.

“Taking the technology currently in the BMW i3 as a basis, by 2030 we will be able to double the energy density of our battery cells – and therefore also the operating range of the vehicles for our customers.” The BMW Group today presented its new high-tech Competence Centre to media representatives from around the world in the presence of Bavarian state premier Dr Markus Söder, revealing state-of-the-art labs, research facilities and prototype systems. The new Competence Centre maps the entire value chain of battery cell technology – from research and development to a cell’s composition and design, and its suitability for large-scale manufacture.

The facility brings together the full breadth of the company’s expertise and lays the foundations for adding to it.

The short distances and cross-functional collaboration at work here will enable complete, transparent and sustainable development of battery cells.

Here, it is important that consideration is given to the issue of recycling from the outset.
