Ulm exhibition "AKKU ALLE" ready to start
The Corona virus has changed our lives - dreams have been shattered, livelihoods are on the brink of extinction. At the same time, there are also crisis winners: automotive companies are currently conquering an unimagined growth market. E-cars are more popular than ever. Producers of electrical devices cannot complain either. In times of home offices, demand is also growing for smartphones and laptops. for smartphones and laptops.
Somewhat provocatively, Ulm battery research therefore raises the question: "AKKU ALLE?!" (Battery low?). The battery business is booming. At the same time, Ulm battery researchers face the challenge that batteries must also deliver what they promise: A climate-friendly energy supply and electromobility for all of us. This requires sustainable battery materials, some of which have yet to be invented.
These batteries of the future are being researched in Ulm. For the first time, Ulm's battery research (Helmholtz Institute Ulm, Cluster of Excellence POLiS, Research Platform CELEST, German Aerospace Center, Ulm University, Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) is jointly hosting an exhibition on sustainable energy storage and electromobility for the public at m25 (Münsterplatz 25).
The AKKU ALLE exhibition features more than 100 battery-powered exhibits from everyday life. Absolute highlights of the exhibition: In a "blackout" simulation for Ulm in 2029, a six-day power outage in the Danube-Iller region is virtually acted out. In addition, top-class exhibits from industry and science will be on display. Included: a large-scale e-car module, a hydrogen aircraft, a home storage system and over 100 individual exhibits from everyday life. Visitors will be amazed at where a battery is hidden everywhere.
The exhibition "AKKU ALLE?!" will be on display at m25 (Münsterplatz 25) from April 15 (or as soon as Corona regulations permit an opening) to July 14, 2021, as part of the Berblingen anniversary.
The opening hours of the exhibition are Tuesday to Sunday from 2 to 6 pm.
