The Battery Show Europe Sets Record Year with 20,000-plus Participants, 23% Growth

Stuttgart, the hub for the automobile industry in Europe, hosted increased attendees, highlighting globally recognized decisions and innovations in EV, battery technology and supply chain.

STUTTGART, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / July 10, 2024 / The Battery Show Europe and Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe, the premier European event for all things battery and H/EV technology, hosted over 20,000 attendees during the three-day event at the Messe Stuttgart, Germany on 18-20 June 2024. Top exhibitors included the likes of Siemens, Parker, Lyric Germany, Keyence, Atlas Copco, ScanTech and ThermoFisher Scientific.

Along with top-notch exhibitors, the event featured product showcases, allowing attendees to dig into new technologies and experience the latest innovations first-hand. Another highlight of the show is the Open Tech Forum, which hosted more than 20 presentations covering battery production, development and quality control, predictive battery analytics, allowing for expanded educational opportunities.

“The EV market is continuing to evolve throughout Europe with the region consistently introducing new regulations to support its growth,” says John Lewinski, vice president, Informa Markets Engineering. “As the global leader of automotive, EV and energy storage, hosting The Battery Show in Stuttgart is crucial for supporting the intersection of European and global markets. This year’s event brought together the best-in-class innovators at the heart of the automotive industry to discover new technologies that drive worldwide impact.”

“We are changing from teachers to become students,” Sebastian Wolf, chief operating officer of Volkswagen’s PowerCo battery unit and conference panelist at The Battery Show Europe, notes in Bloomberg. “We have to all focus on becoming faster and becoming cost efficient.”

The Battery Show Europe highlights the continued growth of the European battery and EV markets, valued at USD $250 billion, a topic covered during a panel titled Battery Regulation and Battery Passport: Efficient policies for a competitive European automotive sector. With the continued expansion, the German government most recently developed battery passports to function as digital ID technology that can be used to trace battery minerals and materials along their supply chains. This new technology was highlighted by Systemiq, a company working to integrate Battery Passports throughout the EU.

The passports will also allow access lifetime to carbon emissions, recycled materials and more, to encourage more transparency from manufactures and aligning with the mandate for electric vehicles sold in the European Union beginning in 2027 to show the composition of batteries, including origin of key materials, carbon footprint and volume of recycled content.

Along with heightened focus on Battery Passports, a new track for the show, “Exploring BESS Technology,” featured Stationary Energy Storage Systems (ESS), as it is a significant growth sector for the industry. The technology, which allows for the storage of energy that can be turned into electricity when needed, can be used for both grid and mobility needs. Considered a form of renewable energy, ESS can also be utilized for sustainability initiatives.

The Battery Show Europe returns to Stuttgart in 2025 on 3-5 June. The Battery Show North America takes place 7-10 October 2024 at a new location with significant growth in Detroit, Michigan at Huntington Place. Register for the largest battery and EV show in North America at
