This session will provide the results of two reports on lead-based batteries, focusing on their contribution to CO2-emission savings and on closed-loop recycling. The reports were commissioned together with associations of the automotive and lead industries. It will also address developments in the recycling of batteries, and outline proposed measures to enhance safety.
The decarbonisation of the EU’s transport sector and the gradual electrification of the fleet are discussed in this session. EUROBAT will present the European battery industry’s vision of which technical improvements should be prioritized for e-mobility batteries, from now until 2030. The speakers from T&E and BMW will also provide viewpoints on how Europe can move towards e-mobility and what requirements this puts on batteries.
12:00 to 13:00 - Session 3 Panel discussion: Europe's Energy Union - What role for battery energy storage?
In February this year, the European Commission presented its plan for an Energy Union. Energy and climate change mitigation are fundamental challenges: energy security, energy efficiency and decarbonisation of our energy mix are among the main topics the Commission will work on during the next five years. Battery energy storage and battery services are needed now to support the deployment and integration of renewables. Panelists will discuss how to overcome existing regulatory barriers in Europe to use the full potential of battery energy storage and measures taken in other parts of the world.
13:00 to 13:15 Closing Address, Johann-Friedrich Dempwolff, EUROBAT President, Johnson Controls Power Solutions Europe
