The agenda and keynote speakers for two major European co-located industry events – The Battery Show Conference Europe and Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference, taking place in Stuttgart, Germany on May 7-9, 2019 – have been announced.
These expert-led conferences address the most pressing and pervasive challenges in the battery and electric vehicle industries today. They mark a unique opportunity for anyone working in or connected to these industries to discover the very latest developments and hear from those at the vanguard of industry evolution.
Expert speakers from organizations including Audi, Leclanché, NASA Johnson Space Center, Mercedes-Benz, Airbus, and Williams Advanced Engineering are billed to share their insights at The Battery Show Europe Conference. At Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference, speakers from Hyundai Motor Europe, the mobility and transport segment of the European Commission, BAIC Motor Company and TU Delft are among those confirmed to discuss industry topics, prominent pain points and significant current and predicted developments.
The conferences will continue to build on the most popular topics of 2018, from the short-term gains that can be achieved in battery performance and lifetime through the design and assembly, BMS and charging of battery packs to broad challenges in the supply chain for electric and hybrid vehicles. Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference keeps delegates informed of advancements in this rapidly evolving industry – an objective it achieves by comparing recent developments in vehicles of this kind and discussing in detail the latest technologies and solutions intended to optimize H/EV vehicles, plus the impact these changes will have on different elements of the supply chain.
Topics in focus across the conference include market trends and growth opportunities; realizing a European-based battery value chain; application trends; the fast-charging trade-off; extending battery life through battery management system innovation; future-proofing 12V, lead-acid, lithium and alternative technologies; the future of electric vehicles in the connected, autonomous world of Mobility as a Service (MaaS); pushing the limits of lithium-ion cell development; the current and future role of China in the EV market; powertrain efficiency; and hybrid powertrains for commercial vehicles.
The 2019 event will also see the return of the popular interactive platform Slido, plus a full day of conference workshops ahead of the main event on Monday, May 6. Workshop themes connected to electric vehicles include fast charging and XFC infrastructure evolution and impact, plus V2G technology, while themes related to battery developments include preventing thermal runaway in battery pack design, and reducing cost and improving speed to market through virtual battery design and simulation.
Super early-bird rates are available to the conference until Friday January 18, 2019. To find out more about these engaging conferences and how you can participate, visit The Battery Show Conference Europe or Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference.
The conferences run alongside the largest trade show of its kind for the European battery and electric vehicle industries, with 400+ exhibits including A123 Systems, Akasol, Valeo, Continental, Siemens and Bosch Rexroth. The free-to-attend trade fair is an opportunity to discover the latest innovations, stay ahead of new developments and forge crucial connections with key industry players. Visitors can pre-register for a trade fair pass via the event websites, The Battery Show Europe and Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe.
