Nothing will happen without batteries making it happen!

05.01.2017

9th International Symposium

Advanced Battery Power – Kraftwerk Batterie

Aachen, 29-30 March 2017

Life in our modern world without batteries is almost unthinkable, and electricity will in future come more often from batteries than from a socket.

Being contactable wherever you are means always having batteries in your communication devices. Batteries are employed millions of times a day to start combustion engines, as well as being used for emergency power supplies.

However, batteries will soon not just help us get started, they will also supply the motive power for our cars. Future electric vehicles will have ranges of 400 km and more. This will be made possible by the rapidly falling price of batteries and the emerging mass market.

These days, batteries are an integral technological component in home solar energy installations and in the electricity grid generally, and their importance is growing dramatically.  

Researchers, developers and users from industry, science and research will be discussing the latest trends, studies and findings from battery research from 29-30 March 2017 in Aachen at the English-language Advanced Battery Power Conference.  

The programme is now online (www.battery-power.eu). Over 550 trade visitors are expected. Internationally renowned experts such as Jeff Dahn, FRSC from Dalhousie University NSERC/Tesla Canada Industrial Research and Dr. Michael Thackeray from the Argonne National Laboratory have already been booked as keynote speakers. 

The Advanced Battery Power Symposium on the previous day will offer related introductory and basic seminars. Battery Day NRW will be sponsored by Svenja Schulze, Minister of Innovation, Science and Research of the State of Nordrhein-Westfalen.

For three days in March 2017, the Eurogress convention centre in Aachen will be the global centre of international battery research and applications.

The exhibition is already almost fully booked.

Im Focus: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
