STUTTGART, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / May 16, 2024 / The Battery Show Europe and Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe, Europe's highly anticipated European event for all things battery and electric technology, today announces its keynote speakers set to take the stage in Messe Stuttgart, Germany June 18-20. Dedicated to the latest developments in the advanced battery and automotive industries, each session is intentionally curated with the global battery leaders paving progress for new technologies to anticipate future trajectories of the trade.

The opening keynote, "Race for The Most Advanced Gigafactory", presented by Robert Heiler, Senior Manager, Porsche Consulting and Dr Xiaohan Wu, Lead Expert, Porsche Consulting, will present on Europe's giga-scale and how to defy the competition through cost control. Subsequently, Christoffer Blomqvist, Head of Purchasing Volvo Battery Mariestad at Volvo Group, will explore sustainable cells and Mariestad's fossil-free approach for a sustainable future. With the European EV sector on a fast track towards a zero-emission future, the session will help attendees understand the blueprint for Europe's first large-scale, fossil-free battery production facility dedicated to electric trucks.

Lutz Stiegler, CTO at Polestar and Amir Tirosh, COO at StoreDot, will discuss the barriers of EV ownership and how Polestar and StoreDot are integrating extreme fast charging capabilities through innovative technology in electric vehicle battery packs. Following in the afternoon, Simon Engelke, Founder and Chair Battery Associates and Bianca Goebel, Ambassador at Battery Associates, present a session on empowering Europe's EV battery workforce. As manufacturing continues to face skilled labor shortages, education on attracting and retaining existing technical battery talent is a critical focus for the industry.
