Conference Showcases the Current State of Battery Technology


The Battery Day NRW on Wednesday, April 26, is a showcase of the institutions and companies heavily involved in the market for battery technology and applications. Mona Neubaur, Minister for Economic Affairs, Industry, Climate Protection, and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, is the patron of the 14th Battery Day NRW.


The conference, whose partners include the Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives at RWTH Aachen University, will be kicked off by Roland Berger, who will give a talk on an overview of the various current battery technologies. A startup session in battery recycling, battery diagnostics, and new materials will then follow. Claudius Jehle from volytica diagnostics will talk about risk management through battery diagnostics – a topic that is becoming increasingly interesting for insurance companies and banks. In the session, battery issues from industry and application, the topics of storage and transport of lithium-ion batteries, handling batteries from a fire service perspective, and the importance of batteries as energy storage for vehicle-to-grid (V2G) applications will be discussed in all facets.

Battery Day NRW 2023 is part of the Battery Conference, which, in addition to the event on April 26 held in German, also consists of the international, Advanced Battery Power Conference held in English on April 27 and 28 in Aachen and, in parallel, 10 subject-specific virtual seminars on April 26. The Vehicle to Grid Conference will also be held in English on April 27 and 28, with an accompanying exhibition also taking place on all three days.

It is organized by Haus der Technik (HDT), which has its headquarters in Essen, in cooperation with the NanoMicroMaterialsPhotonic.NRW Cluster and the association ElektroMobilität NRW.
