Batteries - A European success story-14Oct

Batteries: a European success story

Welcome to a video conference on Batteries: a European success story, organised by  the “Friends of Batteries”, the European parliamentary working group for batteries

In October 2017, Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič launched the European Battery Alliance (EBA) to build a competitive, sustainable and innovative battery ecosystem in Europe, covering the entire value chain, from raw materials’ ethical sourcing and refining, battery cell production, to recycling and re-use. By doing so, the EBA is set to prevent Europe’s technological dependence and to maintain our industrial leadership, notably in automotive sector.

In the span of three years, the EBA has become Europe’s true success story. It has attracted over 500 industrial and innovation actors and secured, thanks to the cooperation with the European Investment Bank, some €100 billion in investments along the entire value chain. Several industrial projects have emerged across Member States.

In the face of the COVID-19 crisis, there is a strong determination by participants to accelerate this crucial work, including projects along the value chain. This will bolster Europe’s resilience and strategic autonomy in one of the key industrial ecosystem. The active role of and close partnership with the European Parliament will be inevitable.

The “Friends of Batteries” group aims to facilitate such cooperation. Its launch will allow discussing with the Members of the European Parliament our joint strategic action necessary to fast-track the work under the EBA and thus, contribute to Europe’ recovery. This will include establishing a new fit-for-future regulatory framework, leveraging investment, fostering cross-regional cooperation on innovative projects, stepping-up research and innovation, and adopting a strategic approach to critical raw materials to strengthen crucial future markets in a sustainable way.

We are looking forward to your participation and jointly supporting the European Union’s recovery, aimed to build a more sustainable, competitive and more resilient economy.
