Helmholtz Institute Münster Ionics in Energy Storage
The Helmholtz Institute Münster for Ionics in Energy Storage (IEK-12) was founded in July 2014. It is run as a branch office of Forschungszentrum Jülich together with the University of Münster (WWU) and RWTH Aachen University. IEK-12 is concerned with researching electrolytes as a key component for new battery concepts. The electrolyte is a central part of any battery and is crucial for making the use of renewable energy sources cheap and widely available, thus successfully transforming the German energy sector.
