The Battery Summit opens the debate on solutions to address EU challenges

February 26, 2021

The European Commission adopted a Circular Economy Action Plan – one of the main building blocks of the European Green Deal, Europe’s new agenda for sustainable growth. With measures along the entire life cycle of products, the new Action Plan aims to make our economy fit for a green future, strengthen our competitiveness while protecting the environment and give new rights to consumers.

Batteries placed on the EU market should become sustainable, high-performing and safe all along their entire life cycle.

For one of the speakers joining us this March 22-23 in the Battery Summit organized by INL, Vice-President for Interinstitutional Relations Maroš Šefčovič, “the Commission puts forward a new future-proof regulatory framework on batteries to ensure that only the greenest, best performing and safest batteries make it onto the EU market. This ambitious framework on transparent and ethical sourcing of raw materials, carbon-footprint of batteries, and recycling is an essential element to achieve open strategic autonomy in this critical sector and accelerate our work under the European Battery Alliance.”

The Battery Summit invites everyone to discuss how batteries will promote competitive sustainability and are necessary for green transport, clean energy and to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. Join us on 22-23 March 2021 in a virtual conference that will:

  • Showcase industrial RTD+I initiatives along the battery value-chain with the potential to become game-changers in the Iberian region;

  • Identify actions that are crucial for build-up battery technology and production capacity in the EU, which is crucial to reach climate targets and for low-emission mobility, energy storage, and Europe’s economic strategy;

  • Position Spanish and Portuguese industrial and scientific communities to face emerging opportunities and challenges towards a new generation of batteries;

  • Help bridging the skills –gap within the batteries industry.

Join the panel of confirmed speakers: Maroš Šefcovic – European Commission Vice-President for the Energy Union and EU Space Policy; Manuel Heitor – Portuguese Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education; Kristina Edstrom, BATTERY 2030+ Project Coordinator; Oscar Miguel, Director CIDETEC; Prof. Dr. Frank Gielen, Executive Board Member & Education Director InnoEnergy SE; Thore Sekkenes, EBA Program Director, Industry European Battery Alliance; Nuno Silva, CTO & Executive Board Member Efacec and many more.
