  • 70+ high-level speakers from the battery industry’s top OEMs, manufacturers, and forecasters
  • Three days of in-depth discussions of key topics affecting the battery industry
  • How 48V architecture can help the automotive industry tackle emission targets
  • How Europe’s battery industry can compete on global scale
  • The Battery Show Conference Europe’s packed, three-day agenda announced

Sindelfingen, Germany, 13-Feb-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — The Battery Show Conference Europe offers an unparalleled opportunity to hear from industry leaders on the prominent topics affecting the sector today.

Speakers from Nissan, BMW, Siemens, CATL, and the European Commission will be among those discussing the role of batteries in shaping Europe’s low-carbon future. The full agenda is available online now.

Co-located with the Electric Vehicle & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference Europe, the two-track event brings together over 70 high-calibre speakers to examine the major topics currently affecting the battery industry.

Topics on the agenda include vehicle electrification trends from OEMs such as Jaguar Land Rover, Renault, Fiat Chrysler, and Ford; technology innovations from battery makers including Exide Technologies; and in-depth analysis on how Europe’s battery industry can compete on a global scale by analysts such as Morgan Stanley.

Electrification of vehicles is a key market driver for battery adoption in Europe, with Tier 1 suppliers including JCI, Continental, and BorgWarner developing ways for vehicle OEMs to meet EU emission targets leading up to 2021.

One area the automotive industry is embracing is 48V architecture, with leading vehicle-makers such as Daimler, Ford, and Renault among the automotive OEMs pursuing the technology.

Speakers from the biggest names in the battery industry will discuss why investment and interest in the technology is set to continue, while providing their views on what constitutes the optimum 48V architecture.

An exciting aspect of the agenda is the distinctive audience-interactive track that allows in-depth peer-to-peer discussion on vehicle hybridization solutions.

A second major driver for battery adoption in Europe is the need for affordable, cleaner, and ideally renewable energy.

High-level speakers including representatives from Nissan and BMW will look at the opportunities that Europe’s stationary ESS market can offer EV OEMs, and how the challenges of EU regulations and barriers can be overcome to ensure the stationary storage market continues to grow.

Battery manufacturing is another hot topic that will be investigated during The Battery Show Europe.

Speakers from CATL, the European Commission, and Siemens will look at the large-scale manufacturing innovations, best practices, roadmaps, and trends that will allow Europe to one day compete in the global stationary and motive battery industry.
