One particular question is at the heart of discussions on electrification, namely how will electrical energy be stored. For this reason, the first event in the series is dedicated entirely to the battery. Experts in battery research, development and recycling will highlight the different stages of a battery’s life cycle – from the extraction of the raw materials to battery manufacture and from usage to secondary recycling.
In addition to purely technical aspects, the focus will also be on environmental protection and responsibility, as well as research into alternatives and superbatteries. The event will also consider why Germany lags behind its international competitors in battery production.
Please note that this event will be held in German.
