Help shape the future of energy storage


On the occasion of BASF’s 150th anniversary, we invite you to join us in creating a better and sustainable future. Efficient energy storage is one of the key factors that will determine our future quality of life. Storage technologies are set to play a crucial role in the energy markets of the future due to their ability to:

  • Facilitate the integration of intermittent renewable energy sources in the grid

  • Provide operating reserves (load management/load leveling)

  • Offer economic opportunities (arbitrage)

Although many technologies already exist, the goal is to develop and deploy innovative, technical solutions that will provide robust economic opportunities.

BASF is looking to find low-cost grid-scale energy storage technologies that will provide reliable global energy reserves and create a strong economic framework for energy production and distribution.
