Watch: Future battery technology – a journey into the unknown for the supply chain | Video
Electrification is bringing new players, business models and technologies to the automotive sector, at a much faster rate of change than the typical development cycles of the sector. As a result, while OEMs and suppliers are increasing technologies such as lithium-ion batteries, changes in chemistry, design, and application could disrupt the supply chain, from material procurement. to battery logistics, after-sales service, battery exchange and recycling processes.
In this special conference and a conversation by the fire with the futurist and specialist in EV and batteries, Greg Ombach, who leads the research of future technologies in Airbus and has led the battery strategy at levels 1, provides information on the changing shape of the battery value chain. Explore how key disruptors in battery technology, including lithium ion phosphate, sulfur, and solid state, could affect supply and production. He also talks about how future mobility transcends traditional automotive business models, with companies like Airbus pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with urban air transport and more.
