Industry Poll: Winter
Last month we asked you, our readers to answer the biggest question for the European energy storage sector in 2018:
The results are enlightening, not one person felt that the chase to catch up by European cell manufacturing is already underway. However there is hope; a third of respondents felt that the chase is possible with increased ‘Pan-European’ collaboration. Perhaps the most interesting result is that 47% of you felt that the region might never catch up with Asia on lithium ion manufacturing; but that turning to solid state or other advanced cell manufacturing may hold the key to boosting the European industry and taking the lead on energy storage technology in future. Hear insight from European and global cell manufacturing experts at The Battery Show Conference Europe,where we have several sessions addressing this pivotal issue, not least in our headline ‘Leader’s Debate’ featuring executive speakers from CATL, Northvolt, Volkswagen, TerraE and NAATBatt on the future of cell manufacturing in Europe – see the Brief Agenda overview for further details.
