On July 12 and 13, 2023, our 5th International Automotive Battery Conference took place in Munich, Germany.
With a total of 100 attendees, our 2023 expert speakers from BMW, CATL, Daimler Truck, Dräxlmaier, Infineon, Piech – to name but a few – our esteemed partners, and the strong advisory board chaired by Peter Gresch, this conference will be one to remember!
Excellent networking, in-depth discussions and valuable contributions from attendees to the speakers and a panel session on “Will Solid State or Semi Solid State be the Technology of the Future” were definitely the hallmarks of the 2023 Automotive Battery Conference.
However, there are still many challenges ahead. Discussions focused on the battery chemistry of the future and whether a battery in a long-haul truck can compete with fuel cell technology. It is clear that lithium-ion cells in various forms variants will be the standard for now and the next few years. Solid-state batteries are a future alternative, but they need to be be cost-optimised to be competitive.
Only together will we be able to meet the challenges of the future. So let us meet again at the next Automotive Battery Conference in Munich, Germany, on July, 9 and 10, 2024.
