DLR is a German national research laboratory with approx. 7.000 employees devoted to the research areas

of aerospace, aeronautics, transportation, and energy. The DLR Institute of Technical Thermodynamics
(DLR-TT, head: Dr. R. Tamme) is active in the fields of renewable energy research and technology
development for efficient and low-emission energy conversion and utilisation. The section Electrochemical
Energy Technology (head: Prof. K. A. Friedrich, staff: 60) has long-term experience in fuel cells (SOFC, PEFC and DMFC), batteries and electrolysers. The division also has extensive experience in the modelling
and characterisation of components of electrochemical energy converters with electrochemical and
physical methods as well as in the diagnostics of fuel cells. A new section for Computer Assisted Electrochemistry was established in 2012 which is headed by Dr. Arnulf Latz.
Tasks attributed within the project
Within WP3, development of multi-scale models for lithium-sulphur cell, combining the electrode-level
micro-scale with the cell-level macro-scale. Furthermore, DLR will contribute to WP 1, 2 and 11.
