The demand for batteries for electric mobility is leading to growing production capacities worldwide. Manufacturers are facing the challenge of implementing a battery production that is cost and resource efficient on a large gigawatt hour scale. The International Battery Production Conference supports this and covers relevant topics of battery production. The conference offers interested parties from industry, politics and science a platform for discussion and networking. Speakers from industry and science provide insights into current developments, trends and research results related to battery production. IBPC addresses the following topics:

  • Production of state-of-the-art batteries for mobile and stationary application
  • Production technologies for new battery generations
  • Electrode production, cell assembly and cell conditioning
  • Battery cell, module and pack production
  • Battery safety
  • Industrie 4.0 for battery production
  • Sustainable production and value chains
  • Modelling, simulation and diagnostics

IBPC will be held for the first time in 2018. In the opening year, the focus will be on battery cell production. This year's keynote speakers are:


Patrick Bernard, SAFT
Strategies for defining the production parameters for high numbers of different cell designs


Prof. Anders Strømman, NTNU
Industrial ecology in battery production


Dr. Holger Manz, Volkswagen
Future Trends for Battery Systems – the OEM perspective


Torge Thönnessen, Custom Cells
Actual and future cell designs for mass market and niche market applications


Dr. Ulrich Ehmes, TerraE
Battery cell production in Germany


Peter Schulz, Manz AG
Machines and systems for the manufacturing of large battery cells and battery modules
