ELBC, the global lead battery innovation conference taking place in Lyon, France, later this year, today launched a call for papers, expo bookings and sponsorship packages.
The event, which takes place from 6 to 9 September, will be the first face-to-face ELBC conference since Vienna in 2018 – after the 2020 event took place online for the first time amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Today, the International Lead Association (ILA) and the Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI), which are jointly organising the conference, called for papers on lead battery energy storage systems, automotive and industrial batteries, and updates on technical developments and new research.

The conference venue will be Lyon’s Centre de Congrès, with easy links to international airports including Paris and Nice.
ILA managing director Dr Andy Bush said: "We are delighted to be planning ELBC again, a unique conference which is organised by the industry for the industry.”

"It’s been a long wait to get back together and discuss in person all aspects of the market as well as innovation and lead battery research.”

"ELBC brings together the whole industry from manufacturers to suppliers, researchers and analysts. We will be hosting a major expo and look forward to seeing partners from across the industry and the world,” Bush said.


CBI director Dr Alistair Davidson said: "We’re co-organising ELBC for the first time and as interest in lead battery innovation continues to grow, ELBC is a great opportunity to hear all of the latest developments in research as well as technical updates.”

"We will also be holding a pre-conference workshop in Lyon on low-voltage EV batteries – a significant future application for the technology.”

Companies can also reserve an expo stand and enhance their visibility with sponsorship packages. More than 120 expo stands, plus silver and bronze sponsorship packages, are available to book.

Submissions are open for six weeks – abstracts to join ELBC’s technical programme can be submitted via the link below.
