The world's leading experts on batteries and fuel cells convened at Ulm to discuss the industry's latest developments on batteries and fuel cells.

 

From July 20 to 21, 2016, this year's event was attended by big name players. Delegates from BMW, Daimler, Honda, Porsche, Samsung, Tesla, Varta and other prominent companies took the opportunity to talk about the future of key e-mobility technologies. The agenda called for eight presentation sessions by around 40 experts from Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, South Korea and the USA. They presented and discussed about new materials, better components and practical experiences. The UECT's focus topics this year has been the lifetime and safety of electrochemical energy technologies. Further highlight was the poster exhibition with awarding the best three scientific posters. The participants enjoyed the many possibilities for discussions in a pleasant and friendly environment.

"High-performance batteries and fuel cells are the key to a successful transition to e-mobility and exit from fossil fuels," so Prof. Dr. Werner Tillmetz, head of the scientific commitee and member of ZSW's board of directors. "The 15th Ulm ElectroChemical Talks tie together the full range of topics from fundamental research and lessons learned in daily use to manufacturing issues."

Tutorials on lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and hydrogen technologies started on July 19 at the Ulm Science Park afforded all kinds of insights into fundamentals and current research priorities. Attendees could also visit the new hydrogen filling station, the ZSW Laboratory for Battery Technology (eLaB), its safety testing center and pilot manufacturing line.
