(businesspress24) - Regarded as a leader for innovation in mobility, Daimler''s battery research and development expert, Benedikt Friess, will share battery development and Daimler''s e-mobility strategy at Argus Batteries in Automotives, which is being held on 18-19 September in Wiesbaden, Germany. The live on-stage interview will explore Daimler''s focus on the drive towards e-mobility. Benedikt will also examine current challenges in finding the optimal balance between energy density, operational stability and cost-efficiency for batteries and will discuss how this fits in with Daimler''s strategy for reducing battery cost.

The latest developments in electric vehicle technology, and how European car manufacturers are changing strategies to meet EU emissions targets, will be tackled by Groupe Renault''s Catherine Girard - Expert Leader Energy and Raw Materials. Identifying the remaining barriers to growth in European and global hybrid and electric vehicle sales, Catherine will address how technology roadmaps for global and European original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will help to overcome barriers to growth in the sale of electric vehicles.

The future of the customer-centric vehicle will be mapped by Nissan Motor Corporation''s Ana Paola Reginatto, European LEAF Product Manager - Electric Vehicles, in an address that will look at efforts to increase the availability of charging infrastructure and minimise charging time. Efforts to develop economically and environmentally sustainable vehicles will be explored alongside advances in research and development and insight into the availability of raw materials.
