An overview will be given of the present status, the state of the art and of prospects regarding the use of electrochemical energy storage. Thin film batteries for small devices and large scale application as found in companies like VDL will be reviewed. What is the ultimate energy density achievable? An important question is on the availability of sufficient material for future applications and on the recyclability.
