The poster award presentation is one of the traditional highlights of the conference „Advanced Battery Power“ which was held in Münster/Germany this year. After the greetings of Mayer Gerhard Joksch of the municipal of Münster at the evening reception Prof. Dr. Martin Winter assisted by Prof. Dr. Dirk Uwe Sauer hosted the ceremony.

The first prize came with a purse of 750 Euros and was won by Ralf Wagner of the MEET Battery Research Center for his poster “Counterintuitive role of magnesium salts as electrolyte additives on the susceptible cathode/electrolyte interface for high voltage lithium-ion batteries”.

The second prize worth 500 Euros went to Daniel Schröder of the Justus-Liebig-Universtiy of Giessen with his work on “Operating Challenges for Non-Aqueous Lithium Oxygen and Sodium Oxygen Batteries”.

Christiane Schilcher of the Technical University of Braunschweig came in Their and was presented with 250 Euros for her poster on „Calendering of LMO cathodes and its effect on structural and electrochemical properties”.

Every year the poster price is donated by the Haus der Technik in Essen.

EEHE 2016:

Conference on Electrics/Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and Electrical Energy Management, June, 8-9 2016, Wiesloch, Germany

15.2.2016 The international EEHE Conference (Electrics / Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and Electrical Energy Management) is being held on 8 and 9 June 2016 for the fifth time. Haus der Technik brings together developers, users and researchers at EEHE, which combines the themes of three HDT conferences: „Energy Management and On-Board Networks“, „Electrics / Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles“ and „Engine Start / Stop Systems“.

Conference participants have the chance to meet all important players in the industry at a single conference. From the large number of submissions received, a particularly attractive programme has been put together with poster presentations and vehicle displays.

EEHE 2015 in Bad Boll was a great success with around 200 participants, 50 speakers, an attractive exhibition, numerous electric, hybrid and test vehicles as well as countless meetings, discussions and the opportunity to forge interesting contacts.

We invite you to share your recent scientific results, research projects, as well as industrial developments and strategies, either in oral or poster presentations. Conference language is English.


  • Components, systems and architectures and design tools for Micro up to Full Hybrid, Plug-in-Hybrid and Electric Vehicles
  • Electrified powertrain systems, High Volatage Safety, semiconductors for Hybrid and Electric Vehicle applications
  • 12/48V power supply system architectures and 48V components
  • Multiple voltage power supply (12V/24V/48V/HV)
  • Electrical energy management and operating strategies (incl. Cloud/Backend)
  • Battery management & low voltage accumulators
  • Electric charging
  • Power electronics
  • Special applications for heavy duty vehicles
  • Development tools and methods
  • Power supply systems for highly automated or autonomous drive

Researchers and scientists invite an international audience to attend the prestigious conference on Advanced Battery Power on 26 and 27 April 2016

MEET, the Battery Research Centre of the Westphalian Wilhelms University of Münster (WWU) will stage the 8th international conference on Advanced Battery Power on 26 and 27 April 2016. The venue is “Messe und Congress Centrum Halle Münsterland” in the city of Münster. MEET, ISEA (Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives) of RWTH Aachen University and Haus der Technik (Essen) will be your hosts. The special target group for this conference are scientists from academia as well as development engineers and users from industry all over the world. Münster and Aachen take turns in hosting this repeating event.

The conference is a great opportunity to get informed about recent developments in battery research. It serves as a platform for face-to-face communication and for developing ideas outside the box. The versatile agenda comprises the entire battery supply chain from raw materials to the battery cell, from individual cells to entire battery systems for mobile and stationary applications.

“We will discuss existing battery solutions such as lead-acid and lithium-ion battery systems but also next-generation batteries which are currently being investigated in basic research activities”, explains Prof Martin Winter of MEET to mention just one of the conference’s areas of emphasis. He will chair and assume the scientific lead of the conference together with Prof Dirk Uwe Sauer of RWTH Aachen. The next-gen systems, so-called post-lithium-ion batteries, include lithium-air and lithium-sulfur systems but also sodium-based and all-solid-state batteries.

The two-day programme is packed with 60 informative lectures, and more than 190 junior and senior scientists will present their posters at this outstanding event which is expected to be attended by approximately 650 participants. Please check for details of the programme. The conference language is English.

The day prior to the conference, i.e. 25 April 2016, will see the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Research of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia stage Battery Day NRW. It will be organised by Haus der Technik, together with the clusters named EnergieForschung.NRW, EnergieRegion.NRW, NanoMikroWerkstoffe.NRW and Elektromobility NRW. These clusters provide insight into a broad range of research topics in the context of energy research and supply, nano/micro materials and electro-mobility. This event will be held in German and chaired again by Dirk Uwe Sauer and Martin Winter. The focus here is on various battery activities pursued by different regional players.
