BATTERY TECH 2019 Exhibition and Conference
Welcome to the BATTERY TECH 2019 Exhibition and Conference where electric vehicle battery technology innovators will meet with leading automotive manufacturers in Frankfurt to explore new battery technologies and battery management systems for use in next generation electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles.
The world's fleet of electric vehicles grew to over 4 million units in 2018. In just over a decade, there will be enough electric cars on the road for every person in Germany, as electric vehicle ownership is estimated to reach 100 million units by 2030. Europe and China posted the largest electric vehicle growth rates in 2018, with electric vehicle sales more than doubling from the previous year.
Spurred by policies that encourage drivers to purchase clean-running cars, the uptake of electric vehicles is still largely driven by the policy environment, as the top 10 leading countries in electric vehicle markets all have a range of policies to promote electric cars with Europe and China being the biggest takers. For China, credits and subsidies will help EVs grow to account for more than a quarter of the car market by 2030. Meanwhile, tightening emissions standards and higher fuel taxes in Europe will further boost electric vehicles.

The development of battery technologies and battery management systems relies on the latest in research and design, manufacturing processes, and technical know-how to develop robust and reliable electric components to support the next generation of electric vehicles. While overall battery costs are falling, government policy remains critical to making EV & HEVs attractive to drivers, encouraging investment and helping carmakers achieve economies of scale.
This year’s BATTERY TECH 2019 is set to become the world’s leading exhibition and conference exclusively for battery technology innovators and manufacturers, to meet and collaborate with a large array of automotive manufacturers, and to examine new methods and technical know-how to address the specific challenges associated with extending battery life for next generation electric vehicles.
This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders across the electric vehicles battery supply chain; from suppliers and service providers to equipment manufacturers for the automotive industry, to network and build cross-market relationships and to discuss the real challenges and opportunities in extending drive range and battery life to meet the needs of electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles.
