Energy Storage and Energy Supply

Overview of our components for energy storage and supply



The automotive industry is in the midst of a radical change. Vehicles are becoming lighter and more fuel-efficient, as well as more environmentally friendly, efficient, networked, and comfortable. The goal is clear: clean mobility. However, emission-free mobility will take fresh thinking, innovative developments and the right material: carbon. It seems black is the new green. Graphite's unique material properties make it the ideal solution, in many ways, for the future of the automotive industry – including in energy storage and energy supply.

The keyword here is safe and efficient battery management, which requires the targeted storage and dissipation of heat. We have developed pioneering solutions in this area with latent heat carbon composite materials. As one of the world’s leading providers of high-tech graphite components in the automotive sector, we know how to use the properties of these materials precisely to meet customer needs.
