The pivot towards EV mobility driven by the UK government’s 2030 ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars means one thing: traditional vehicle markets are coming to an end. The IMechE’s International EV Batteries conference is an invaluable opportunity to gain essential insight into the current state of the global EV battery marketplace.
The 2023 conference represents a chance to obtain a greater understanding of the latest developments in cell design and technology, the off-highway EV landscape, thermal management, and lifecycle analysis. This focus will allow engineers to leave with practical and regulatory input to improve the day-to-day work of their company and continue following the roadmap to a battery powered future.
The race to produce efficient, reliable, and cost-effective solutions to battery demands is growing increasingly competitive. International EV Batteries 2023 is an opportunity to connect with a range of OEMs, manufacturers, researchers and start-ups to pursue solutions to ongoing battery challenges.
