The global battery innovation conference – ELBC – will return next year and be hosted by the city of Lyon, France, the International Lead Association (ILA) announced today.

ELBC – the lead battery innovation conference and expo that is a mainstay of the global battery industry’s calendar – will be held at the Centre de Congrès de Lyon, from 6 to 9 September 2022.

The event will be jointly organised by the ILA and the Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI).

A call for papers and an update on the expo will be released later this autumn, the ILA said.

'Low-carbon role'

Earlier this year, ILA managing director, Dr Andy Bush, told the association’s Pb Online industry briefing event that lead batteries would "undoubtedly” have a role to play in the transition to a low-carbon circular economy.

Bush said continued innovation in the performance of lead batteries would help drive the industry’s success in supporting low-carbon energy policies.

Last September, a new roadmap to boost advanced lead battery design and manufacturing worldwide was launched by the CBI.

The roadmap combines "latest market analysis with a scientific vision” to show how batteries can support green growth and decarbonisation goals, in sectors such as energy storage, telecoms and reliable power for data centres.
