Intermittent renewable energy systems, like solar and wind technologies, require energy storage systems for being effective. The combination of important characteristics of textile structures (e.g. mechanical resilience and flexibility) with the high technical degree of freedom of the textile manufacturing (e.g. high variety in selection of materials, customized patterns and dimensions) can help to improve performance and make energy storage systems feasible for a broad range of mobile and stationary applications. The cooperation between University of Innsbruck and the company Texible provides the technical and research competences to develop three-dimensional electrodes and current collectors manufactured by technical embroidery with the aim to solve technical and electrochemical problems extant in the field, e.g. trade of between power and energy densities. In addition, embroidered structures can be easily disassembled and reused offering the possibility of battery recycling.
