In a glorious end of summer weather, I have just attended the Battery Tech Europe Conference in Munich, Germany. Impeccably organized by the iQHub team, the event focused on battery-related issues, mostly in relation to transportation and electric vehicles. Modest in size, the event welcomed a good caliber of international participants, mainly from Europe, who were highly engaged, knowledgeable, and enjoyed the perfect central location, service and surrounding of the Hilton Hotel Munich.
I maintain that there are always things to learn, new people to meet and contacts to be made at such events, regardless of their size. This event did not disappoint in that respect. Data analysts Inovev kicked off the program with some sobering research and forecasts: they expect that even by 2035, the majority of the world will not have turned to electric when it comes to transportation.
