MPR at the Expert Forum Future Battery 2022 on November 3rd and 4th in Berlin8. November 2022
For the third year in a row, experts in battery solutions from industry and academia came together at Future Battery to talk about the latest issues that are upcoming in battery applications and to participate in various workshops. This year the topic was “Next level: Establishing the battery society”, highlighting five strategic future topics on the role of battery technology for industry and society. Aspects of material and component supply, production scaling, regulatory requirements and sustainability issues such as recyclability or raw material optimization were the focus.
This year, the Future Battery conference was held as a hybrid event at the EstrelConferenceCenter (ECC) Berlin and online with a supporting app. With 80 exhibition booths, visitors could explore the new ideas and technologies of the participating companies on site and obtain valuable information about products and developments. A very agile event format that brought together about 500 participants directly and another 2,500 participants online. This brought together automotive OEMs, manufacturers of battery systems and cells, and their suppliers, so that the complete value-added spectrum of battery technology could be included.
It was a lively and exciting exchange with a view far into the future to technological leaps that are already emerging today. For MPR International there were many insights to current and future opportunities. The massive increase in demand for batteries themselves in the field of e-mobility, as well as the demand for battery testing and approval oand/or registration in countries around the world has increased enormously. For MPR International this means that we have significantly increased our testing capacities therough our partner network. We have been receiving requests for testing from manufacturers who can no longer keep up with their test capacities. We are now able to offer extensive testing in Germany, other EU countries, the UK and the USA for battery testing at short notice and to carry out any necessary certifications. For China this includes the CCC certification of batteries which will soon be mandatory, as well as battery system registration for automotive batteries.
