Christophe PILLOT
Avicenne Energy Director

22 years ago, we launched our first event, Batteries 1999. At that time, Nokia 3310 and StarTac phone were the best sellers.

What happened in the last 20 years?

The Li-ion battery market increased from 2 GWh to almost 200 GWh!

In value, the market for batteries and their components has experienced a strong double-digit growth and several positive factors ensure the fast-growing evolution of the market.

What ambition for 2020?

Avicenne Energy is fully committed to entering a new era! We’ve chosen a new destination for our 2020 Batteries Event, one of the most dynamic European area. Our ambition is to be a world reference event, which brings together all the players in the sector, and the meeting place of technologies (lead acid, NiMH, Li-ion, Post Li-ion), applications (from micro batteries to large format batteries) and of the value chain (chemists OEMs and end users)…

3 days to inspire, learn, understand, inform and share. Our wish is to bring together at least 250 people from across the industry (researchers, raw material suppliers, components, manufacturers, consultants, intellectuals …).

We plan +50 selected speakers, thematic conferences and workshops, 20 to 25 exhibitors, quality networking moments and friendliness !
