Key note lecture
Batteries are building a new power system a new industry in Europe
Bo Normark, Industrial Strategy EIT InnoEnergy
Batteries have the potential to transform the power, industry and transport sectors. We can now see a dramatic market increase for Battery Electric Vehicles. This is driving an unprecedented cost reduction for batteries that also will benefit other applications. The power sector is one of those where the market is still grossly underestimated. The presentation discusses what constitutes “Market Tipping Points” but also how an entirely new battery industry is being built in Europe.
