Towards an environment-friendly and lightweight mobility

The MARBEL project develops an innovative and competitive lightweight battery with the objective to accelerate the mass market take-up of electric and hybrid vehicles.

MARBEL will design, develop and demonstrate a new compact, modular, weight-optimised and high-performance battery pack with longer life, greater energy efficiency in charging and energy use based on a robust and flexible battery management system (BMS) along with ultra-fast battery charging and cooling. Modularity will make possible to streamline repair, servicing and recycling processes, while preserving the value of new batteries and reducing hazards for operators and environmental impact.

Contributing to solving EU industry and societal challenges

More sustainable and efficient electric vehicles

MARBEL will provide electric vehicles' users batteries with a lifespan on 300,000 km, almost doubling the lifespan of current batteries in the market.Electric vehicles with MARBEL batteries will have a shorter recharging time than current solutions in the market (-25 %).

Aligned with EU policies

The project contributes to the New Industrial Strategy for Europe, the Circular Economy Action Plan and the Regulatory Framework for Sustainable Batteries part of key actions of the European Green Deal.

Contribution to meet GHG EU emission targets

MARBEL project contributes to meet the EU emission reduction target of 40% by 2030 by developing more efficient batteries for Electric Vehicles.

The project aims at fostering the acceptance and use of electric vehicles by solving two of the main critical points in consumer’s decision-making: limited vehicle autonomy and charging time, enabling travelling longer distances.
