The 15th European Lead Battery conference (15ELBC), organised by the International Lead Association, will be held from 13-16 September 2016 in Valletta, Malta.

This premier Conference and Exhibition brings together key technical, manufacturing, marketing, R&D personnel and users to discuss and examine the strategic, technical and commercial issues of greatest importance to the lead-acid battery industry today.

Global energy demands are escalating inexorably and fears about climate change continue to concern scientists and policymakers around the world. The need for more efficient and widespread energy storage and for ways of reducing vehicle and other carbon emissions are therefore major priorities. These challenges represent outstanding opportunities for the lead-acid battery industry. 

In recent years major advances in the design, performance, manufacture and efficient recyclability of lead batteries have resulted in significant market growth in these new and important uses.

Despite increasing competition from alternative technologies lead batteries remain the dominant chemistry in terms of both market volume and sales, and continue to increase their range of applications due to their many well-recognised advantages.

The 15th European Lead Battery Conference and Exhibition in Malta will feature:

  • Major advances in the design and manufacture of lead-acid batteries resulting in their dramatically increasing use by the global automotive industry for start-stop systems.
  • Design, application and opportunities for lead-acid batteries in sustainable energy storage schemes, micro-grids for isolated communities and smart grids especially in association with renewable energy systems.
  • New data on the use of higher levels of carbon in the negative active mass, a development which is resulting in much improved battery performance.
  • Recent work and results in the design and build of hybrid vehicles, making possible reduced carbon emissions and major improvements in fuel efficiency.
  • Current end market reports, latest advances in battery R&D, and new manufacturing techniques and equipment.
  • Over 100 exhibits by suppliers of equipment, technology, components and materials.
