Share

The Battery Show & EV Tech Europe Digital Days, a three-day digital event, strategically scheduled for 18-20 May to connect and educate industry professionals during a time of immense disruption via technical sessions, panels, networking opportunities, and digital sourcing, today announced the second raft of speakers confirmed to address the advanced battery and hybrid & electric vehicle (H/EV) tech community. Executives and senior-level experts from 3M, EnBW, McLaren Applied, Punch Powertrain, Renault, among many others, will present novel solutions and lead technical demonstrations that address the industry's leading challenges. The online conference will run adjacent to the digital exhibition floor that features hundreds of leading companies including Parker/LORD, Siemens, and TE Connectivity.

Registration for the digital conference and exhibition is open to attendees and press:

  • To tune into the conference, register as an attendee here.
  • To register as press, visit here.

As the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continue to impact grid storage, battery materials, battery-powered electric vehicles, and manufacturer supply chains, the European region is presented with unprecedented stressors amid exceptional market acceleration. Speaking to the importance and timeliness of the event, James Frith, Head of Energy Storage at Bloomberg New Energy Finance and chair of the keynote panel “Meeting Demand for EV Battery Production in Europe; The Rise of the Giga Factory,” said: "The European battery manufacturing industry has been turned on its head over the last three years, going from almost non-existent to the second largest market globally. The Digital Days event will be the perfect opportunity to find out how the companies at the heart of this change envisage the next decade."

"At the rate the advanced battery and H/EV tech sectors are progressing in the European region and the number of obstacles that require an immediate solution, we felt it was critical to orchestrate industry connection before our next in-person event in November," said Rob Shelton, group event director, The Battery Show & EV Tech Europe Digital Days, Informa Markets. "The level of support for the upcoming digital event permeates all corners of the industry and is a clear indicator of the battery and H/EV tech market's fortitude and future advancement."
