The Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, Europe’s main gathering of manufacturers, engineers, and purchasers tackling the hybrid electric vehicle (H/EV) industry’s most pressing issues, running alongside The Battery Show Europe, the most comprehensive advanced battery technology event in the European market, announced an esteemed lineup of speakers and presentation topics encompassing the conference’s 2020 edition. Investigating commercial opportunities currently available for automotive manufacturers and their suppliers, the agenda features representation from today’s most influential companies in the electric vehicle sector – Daimler, McLaren Applied, Renault, Volvo, and more.
The conference is taking place 28-30 April in Messe Stuttgart, Germany alongside the expo. To register as press for The Battery Show Europe and E/HV Technology Expo, please visit here.
As a part of substantial efforts to reduce vehicle emissions, Germany’s National Electromobility Development Plan aims to speed up research and development in battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and their market preparation, targeting a lofty goal of “one million electric vehicles on the road by 2020.” Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe is in a unique and strategic position to help companies navigate impending regulation changes in the European region while simultaneously keeping up with global BEV technological advancements.
“The landscape of the electric vehicle industry is multi-faceted and constantly evolving, thus engineers, manufacturers, and purchasers are working tirelessly to keep up with consumer demand and today’s rapidly mounting market growth driven by policy mandates,” said Robin Shelton, Event Manager, Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe, Informa Markets. “The event is a one-stop-shop for networking, education, and industry advancement. We’re proud to be the go-to conference in this sector for professionals and companies interested in leading the charge in developing new solutions to technological, societal, and environmental challenges.”

28 April 2020
Keynote Panel: The Future of Electric Vehicles in a Rapidly Changing Industry: Technology Opportunities and Challenges for Global and European OEMs
Moderated by James Frith, Senior Energy Storage Analyst, Bloomberg New Energy Finance
- Andreas Hintennach, Ph.D., Professor, Research HV Battery Systems, Daimler AG
- Dr. Elna Holmberg, Vice President Volvo Group Electromobility, Volvo
Join market leading OEMs as they grapple with the challenges facing EV development and mass market adoption. The panel speakers will consider their path to an emission-free future including the role of 48V and the current barriers to mass market BEV and FCEV models. They will also address the key to mass market EV adoption, fast charging, and considering if, and when, the power infrastructure will be ready to support it and the role of battery recycling and reuse in the overall sustainability of EVs.
Presented by Marcin Seredynski, Head of Innovation and Research, E-Bus Competence Centre, Volvo
In this session, Seredynski will discuss:
- E-bus hybridization – the key ingredients to success;
- Energy saving – determining the optimal operating conditions for hybrids;
- Applying geofencing to maximize benefits of hybrid vehicles;
- Levels of bus electrification and resulting societal and environmental outcomes.
Presented by Steve Lambert, Head of Electrification, McLaren Applied
In this session, Lambert will discuss:
- High-performance BEVs and the boundaries they push;
