7th rechargeable battery developer forum informs for three days about the newest trends in the sector

From 25th to 27th March 2014 in the Stadthalle Aschaffenburg

(PresseBox) (Karlstein, ) In recent years, the rechargeable battery developer forum with trade show organised by, currently taking place for the seventh time from 25th to 27th March 2014 in the Stadthalle in Aschaffenburg, has developed into one of the most important European sector meetings for all rechargeable battery manufacturers and their suppliers and customers.

The three-day trade event again kicks off with two half-day intensive seminars on the topics of Battery Packs developed properly and Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery Technologies/Battery Management Systems on 25th March. Offered for the first time in 2013, each year around 120 participants make use of the opportunity to have their knowledge updated by experts in just a few hours in the run-up to the developer forum, and once again this year there were a large number of reserved places, as Dr. Jochen Mähliß, head of, emphasizes: "The overwhelmingly positive resonance to this additional offering reflects the incredible dynamism with which the sector is currently moving forward. Given the rapid technological progress in the area of mobile power supplies and the many standards and regulations, etc. which are sometimes difficult to grasp even for insiders, it is understandably becoming increasingly difficult for companies and their employees to maintain an overview. We are attempting to counteract this with our intensive seminars which save time and costs for participants. We are therefore very pleased that this training offering is receiving so much interest".

Dr. Mähliß once again expects more than 500 participants for the actual expert forum on 26th and 27th March, when around 30 top-class experts will be giving lectures on the latest trends from research and development. This year, Kurt Sigl, President of the Federal Association for Emobility (BEM) and Dr. Reiner Korthauer, Director of the Trade Association for Transformers and Power Supplies at the Central Electrotechnology and Electronics Industry Association (ZVEI) have been engaged as key speakers; they will be opening both morning programs with guest lectures on the topics of Electromobiliy and Stationary Energy Storage. Further key aspects this year are formed by the presentation of current and coming cell generations, the latest battery packaging methods, innovative charging and safety concepts and also problem-solving approaches for OEMs with regard to rechargeable battery storage, fire warning technology, the REACH regulation and much more. In order to also allow interested persons who do not speak German to attend this renowned developer forum, expert lectures in German will be translated simultaneously into English as in 2013.

The developer forum is accompanied by a trade show which is open from 08:30 to 18:00 on the 26th and 27th of March at which more than 30 companies will present their products, solution approaches and services on a total of 2000 m2 of exhibition space again this year. "The combination of lectures and the trade fair has really proven itself in recent years, not least because it means that many contributors are present on both event days and are thus available longer to answer any individual questions forum participants may have. One of the main reasons for the sustained success of this developer forum on rechargeable battery technology is certainly that battery developers and users have a rare chance of a comprehensive expert discussion with lecturers and experts from leading manufacturers and scientific institutions, an opportunity which is made active use of between and after the lectures within the context of the trade fair ", according to Dr. Mähliß.

The attendance fee for the three-day rechargeable battery developer forum including free entrance to the trade fair, breakfast, lunch and coffee buffet, after-show snack and all forum documents is 825 euros per person. For two event days it is 650 euros and for one day it is 350 euros plus 19% VAT in each case.
