Participants will receive information about the latest developments and trends regarding cell selection, battery packaging and safety, charging technologies, power management, standardisation, electromobility and stationary energy storage systems. The Developer Forum is organised by batteryuniversity.eu; over 550 international participants are expected to attend this year’s three-day Forum with around 50 speakers from research and industry; and an accompanying exhibition.
The Forum begins on March 24 with two half-day basic training seminars on the topics of “Battery Management Systems” and “Lithium-ion Battery Technologies” offered both in German- and English-language. “Many of our now well over one thousand training participants use the training seminars of batteryuniversity.eu not only as an introduction to the topic, but also to regularly gain a quick and comprehensive overview of the latest materials, technologies, standards, regulations, etc.,” said Dr. Jochen Mähliß, director of batteryuniversity.eu.
Expert Forums, on March 25 and 26, will provide information about, for example, lithium ion cells specifically for power tools and energy storage, selection criteria for cells, scalable battery management systems, charging devices, standard requirements and fire tests.
Key speakers will deal with developments on the world market, challenges in the energy transition and the next generation of lithium-ion batteries. All German-language expert presentations at this Forum will be simultaneously translated into English. On March 26, a half-day energy storage workshop will take place, for the first time, in parallel with the Developer Forum. During this session, participants will become acquainted with the structure and the operation of modularly constructed energy storage systems.
The Developer Forum is accompanied by an exhibition, with some 40 companies; it is open on March 25 and 26 from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm.
