Storage and use of CO2
The German government is to promote research and development into the storage of CO2. This could be a solution for emissions that cannot otherwise be avoided. The German government will launch a dialogue with all stakeholder groups.
Strengthening battery cell production in Germany
The German government has earmarked about one billion euros to develop battery cell production. This will result in several production sites in Germany. The overall concept "Forschungsfabrik Batterie" (Research Factory for Batteries) supports capacity and technology development all the way along the battery cell value chain.
