Zukunftspreis Sachsen 2021 for the sustainable reuse of vehicle batteries

Dresden/Freiberg, January 07, 2022

TRICERA energy with its project “Reuse of battery modules from production waste for stationary use”, one of the Batteries from vehicle battery production that are no longer used, are incorporated into flexible stationary systems. In combination with a photovoltaic system, the batteries serve other industrial customers in this way as cost-effective storage, as a self-consumption system and for load balancing. The locally generated and stored electricity thus makes a significant contribution to CO2 savings.

For TRICERA energy, the local generation approach is particularly important for the provision of a 100% climate-neutral battery. The battery modules are currently characterized by almost complete value creation within Saxony. The battery system is manufactured entirely in Saxony, and almost all the components supplied come from Saxon SMEs companies.

Martin Hartmann, Managing Director of TRICERA energy, is pleased about the award and is proud: “The award confirms us in our goal of supporting the energy turnaround through local decentralized generation. The Future Prize also motivates us to develop and support local value creation and the workforce in the region and to support them.”
