Events such as this play a pivotal role in gathering all the leading stakeholders in EV and battery manufacturing. I am delighted to be opening the show and fully support its efforts to shine a light on all that the UK’s sector has to offer in the way of skills, R&D, investment opportunities, manufacturing capabilities and natural resources

Rachel Maclean MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department of Transport

As this global pandemic is brought under control, the need for us to decarbonise transport will be as present as ever – and maybe even more so. I’m looking forward to supporting the Battery Cells and Systems Expo on its revised dates in July, and hope to see you there

David Greenwood, Professor, Advanced Propulsion Systems - WMG

Lithium Werks fully support the decision to move Battery Cells & Systems Expo to July and we look forward to showcasing our world-leading Nanophosphate TM powder, cells and modules


Joe Fisher, Co-Founder & CEO - Lithium Werks B.V

July is set to be an important fixture for this fast-paced industry. 2020 has been a challenging year, however events that unify an entire supply chain with a common goal of sharing best-practice and innovation is something what we at Panasonic not just take part in, but celebrate.


Interesting insights into the industry from a very knowledgeable panel.
