TWI will participate in the UK pavilion at The Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo at the Messe Stuttgart in Germany. The delayed event will take place between 30 November and 2 December 2021.
The UK pavilion will showcase next-generation low carbon technologies from the UK’s leading innovators, including TWI, who have a track record of supporting the challenges of OEMs and supply chains in the electric vehicle and energy sectors with impartial, confidential expert knowledge and resources, proving feasibility and building prototypes.
TWI Section Manager, Nick Ludford and Lasers Consultant, Sullivan Smith will both be in attendance at the event, showcasing samples and examples of welding and joining technology related to battery cell and module assembly and applications in the field of electrification.
Managed by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), in partnership with Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, Department for International Trade, SMMT and Innovate UK, The Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo is run alongside The Battery Show Europe, creating Europe’s largest H/EV and advanced battery technology trade fair. Attended by more than 400 international suppliers, the event is a leading meeting place for powertrain technology.
The development of new powertrain technologies is key to delivering the UK Government’s ambitious net-zero emissions targets and is integral to the UK’s green industrial revolution and economic recovery post-COVID-19.
APC is at the heart of the UK’s strategy, providing support and funding for the research, development and industrialisation of technologies that aim to accelerate the realisation of net zero-emission vehicles.
Philippa Oldham, Stakeholder Engagement Director at the APC, said, “Our International Events Programme is helping the next generation of low carbon innovators gain a foothold on the global stage, showcasing the latest product developments. This complements our funding programmes, increasing awareness of emerging technologies and how they are the heart of the UK’s green revolution. We look forward to TWI joining us on the UK Pavilion at The Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo.”
Speaking on the event, TWI’s Nick Ludford said, “TWI are delighted to be exhibiting at the premier global Battery Technology event in Stuttgart. This is a great opportunity to gain visibility and exposure of our expertise to a highly relevant and influential audience. This is an internationally recognised event and TWI want to be part of it.”
