VG CoLAB is positioned in the centre of the electrochemical energy storage value chain.

Our mission


We develop value-adding innovative technologies, techniques, and prototypes in scalable energy storage, power conversion, and software (interfaces, configuration and sizing tools).


We accelerate and derisk the technological scale-up and the time-to-market for our associates and ecosystem partners to foster the overall societal effort to facilitate the energy transition.
