The national battery supply chain: Flash Battery at the panel discussion organized by Key Energy
March 23, 2023
On 23 March 2023, Flash Battery will participate in the panel discussion “The national battery supply chain: where do we stand?” and examine with other speakers the state of the art of European projects aimed at starting a European and national industrial value chain for batteries.
The event, organized by ENEA and Manz, will take place on 23 March at Agora Energy, Hall B2 from 4 to 6 p.m. and is part of the K.EY exhibition schedule staged from 22 to 24 March 2023 at the Rimini Exhibition Center.
The panel’s objective will be to take stock of the two IPCEI projects on batteries (“IPCEI on Batteries” and “IPCEI European Battery Innovation – EuBaTin”), which are intended to give rise to a sustainable supply chain that can develop material, cells, modules and battery systems on a large scale in Europe and thus reduce the supply dependence of these components on non-EU countries.
The discussion will involve stakeholders participating in the two IPCEIs and will consist of two sessions: the first addresses the Upstream segment of the supply chain (raw materials and material production) and on recycling; the second focuses on the Downstream segment, considering the production of cells and battery packs and their applications
At this event, the main objectives of the two European projects will be retraced, and the progress of both IPCEIs will be addressed from the point of view of the Italian partners, while going to analyse the systemic critical issues and individual difficulties, as well as the potential for improvement that the entities involved have found during these years of engagement in the development of the value chain.
Flash Battery, which since 2019 is among the 17 European entities engaged in EU research and value chain creation projects within the IPCEI Battery Project, will be among the participants of the panel discussion “Battery Supply Chain – Downstream (Manufacturing and Application)“, introduced by ENEA, the scientific reference of the IPCEI projects, and Manz Italia, operating in the design of innovative manufacturing solutions in the e-mobility, electronics and energy sectors.
Francesco Guaraldi, R&D Scouting and fundraising at Flash Battery, will take part in the discussion and will have the opportunity to make explicit our company’s active role in the research and development of new technologies in the field of lithium-ion battery production for industrial machines and electric vehicles.
