Modern life thrives on the availability of electrical energy. Countless applications spanning from medical to industrial and consumer products have been made possible only by modern battery technology. Future electric vehicles will have ranges of 450 km and more. Nowadays, batteries are an integral technological component in home solar energy installations and in the electricity grid generally, and their importance is growing dramatically.
Even both, limited energy density and high costs, sectors such as mobility, communications, renewable energy, count on the development of rising storage performances with regard to price, mass and energy.
Reason enough for researchers, application engineers, developers to join the 11th International meeting,“Advanced Battery Power – Kraftwerk Batterie” held in Aachen, Germany, from April 3rd-4th, 2019, gathering academia, industry and the public sector. Over 600 visitors are expected. The latest version of the program is now on-line (www.battery-power.eu).
With Dr. Matthias Ullrich, Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, Prof. Rachid Yazami, Nanyang Technological University, Dr. Hartung Wilstermann, Webasto E-Solutions & Services Boards, Prof. Dr. Petr Novàk, Paul Scherrer Institut, Prof. Dr. Kristina Edström, Uppsala University and Ted Miller (requested), Ford Motor Company
the conference has already attracted international and renowned scientists and practitioners.
The “Battery Day NRW” preceding the main symposium on April 2nd will enable participants to keep abreast with various topics around the basic science and technology by means of a thoroughly adapted series of introductory seminars. The “Battery Day NRW” is supported by the Department of Economy, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and held under the patronage of Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart.
From April 2rd – 4rd, 2019, Aachen will again be the platform to update on, discuss, and experience hands-on the latest developments in battery technology, research, development and examples of applications.
The conference language will be English and German (Battery Day NRW). Further details can be found under www.battery-power.eu. The exhibition is already fully booked.
