Sweden invites to advanced battery innovation

Meet with Invest Sweden’s automotive experts and our network of partners in Orlando, Florida at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference, AABC 2010, booth 308 to discuss future electric transportation solutions.

Sweden was recently chosen to host the European Union’s knowledge and innovation center for smart electric grids and electric storage under the InnoEnergy Program. Take a look at what Sweden has to offer in these areas. Key players in Swedish advanced battery research are Uppsala University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, in collaboration with industry leaders such as ABB and Vattenfall.

- The EU has trusted Sweden to lead the development in smart grids and electrical storage for the coming decade. We thereby hope to be able to attract American and Asian battery players to take a closer look at Sweden when looking for their long term investment into the European battery, smart grid and electrification of transports community. Invest Sweden is happy to be able to bring a broad battery delegation representing Sweden to the AABC 2010. Besides members of the Swedish InnoEnergy program, it includes world class companies such as Volvo Car, Volvo Group, Scania and Intertek as well as Chalmers University of Technology, says Robert P. Karlsson, Invest Sweden.
