On 7 June 2023, our partner EUROBAT (The Association of European Automotive and Industrial Battery Manufacturers) welcomed over 120 stakeholders from the European battery ecosystem in Madrid to discuss the latest advancements in the battery market within the evolving regulatory and policy framework for batteries. Our project coordinator, Juan Castro, attended to the event to represent FREE4LIB.
The sessions of the Forum covered various aspects related to battery energy storage and its impact:
The opening session explored research and innovation opportunities in battery energy storage, emphasizing its significance for Europe's energy independence and sustainable future.
The second session discussed the effectiveness of the Critical Raw Materials Act in promoting EU competitiveness compared to the US Inflation Reduction Act.
The third session, where the FREE4LIB project was presented, highlighted the connection between sustainability and competitive advantage, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing sustainability for organizations.
The final session focused on the role of batteries in advancing e-mobility and achieving zero-emission transportation systems in a sustainable future.
Next year's EUROBAT Forum is scheduled to take place at the Renaissance Hotel in Brussels on 5 June 2024.
