Future Battery Solutions X GigaVaasa

The world’s electrification is accelerating strongly, and the battery energy storages are playing the crucial role in future grids, marine solutions and industrial machinery industries. Idea of the Future Battery Solutions X GigaVaasa Event is to bring together energy storage experts to share the latest know-how related to hybrid and electrified solutions. Development of Nordic Battery Belt is also a valuable form of cooperation.
