Battery Production | VDI Conference

The VDI Battery Production Conference is an ideal opportunity to learn more about the current state of battery design and manufacturing. You’ll obtain an overview of future trends, developments and what the industry needs to consider in terms of raw materials, modeling, simulation and diagnosis as well as cell performance, durability and safety. This event is essential for professionals working in a variety of battery-focused areas such as electromobility, raw material supply, and battery manufacture, but also research, development and design.

Taking charge of future innovation

New developments in mobility are moving fast. And they’re powered by the rise of electric vehicles. This has been made possible in part thanks to the steadily increasing performance, reliability and innovation in batteries. The modern battery is highly dependent upon lithium, to the point where around 46% of global production is used in batteries. This then begs the question of how future demands for this valuable raw material will be met and the corresponding sustainability and supply chain challenges.

Furthermore, there are issues to consider when it comes to the efficiency, performance and actual production of battery cells and batteries for future uses. The VDI Battery Production Conference will look at these and other issues in detail and provide you with an interactive forum where you can exchange ideas with other engineering professionals, engage with international experts and learn about recent innovations leading to better use of batteries and advances in electromobility.
