Energy storage seminar 2: Navigating the Challenges of the Establishment of Large-scale Battery Manufacturing: A Focus on Workforce, Education, and Training

Wednesday 13 March

Music Hall

Free of Charge

We will examine the challenges of setting up large-scale battery manufacturing, emphasizing workforce, education, and training. It is essential to have a sufficient and prepared workforce, ensuring they have the necessary skills to contribute to this industry. We’ll also touch upon other challenges faced by the municipality where battery manufacturing is established, such as how to attract workers, infrastructure development, housing and beyond.

We’ll discuss how the Alliance for Batteries Technology, Training, and Skills (ALBATTS) project has addressed these challenges. ALBATTS, a European-funded project, contributes to the electrification of transport and green energy by designing a blueprint for competencies and training schemes for the battery and electromobility sector.
