The exhibition was also strongly represented with approximately 60 percent growth in exhibiting companies and a threefold space. Renowned international companies from the battery industry were among them - including the leading cell manufacturers such as LG Chem, Murata, Samsung, Panasonic and BYD, which is an absolute unique selling point of this event. From cell and battery manufacturers to OEMs and users, new design, production and manufacturing solutions including battery systems, materials and components, as well as testing and recycling processes were presented.

Even large-sized e-vehicles such as the electric bus from Solaris or the latest prototype of the ACM City Taxi were an eye-catcher.

At the Press Lounge, journalists had the opportunity to meet with experts at an exclusive appointment - among them well-known representatives such as Prof. Dr. Günther Schuh and Sven Bauer - their valuation and need to build a German cell manufacturing experience. Conclusion: Germany, the government as well as the industry, must start with it and not continue to shed light on opportunities and risks. It is agreed - the construction of a German cell production is a learning process and is only getting to a profitable and functioning business after starting and some optimization processes.
