05: Next-generation batteries: European leading-edge technology to leverage electromobility

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The development of next generation batteries is a key factor for the successful introduction to the market of electric vehicles, urgently needed to achieve mandatory emission targets for greenhouse gases and pollutants. To secure the competitiveness of the automotive industry, the European Commission has started a comprehensive initiative for the setup of battery cell production in Europe. The session presents SWOT-analyses of existing and future battery cells and other components, their integration into stacks and into the vehicle as well looking at the international cooperation needed for such a breakthrough in electromobility.
