NiBS Battery Conference...

This year NiBS will again host their annual battery conference at the Lion Quays Resort, Oswestry.

NIBS Battery Conference 8th and 9th November 2017.

For this year’s conference we aim to continue the success of recent years.  This year will be our 8th official conference and we are seeing a changing landscape with regard to batteries.

Battery storage is the hot topic of the year and on the whole, the world is discussing lithium based technologies. This is being talked up by the protagonists and in particular Elon Musk.  However it is interesting that many companies are seeing that combining it with lead acid, will produce the most effective option.  The lithium factor, however, is hardly noticeable in our traditional markets such as the power industry where lead acid, of various technologies, continues to prevail and will do so for many years yet.  It does create interesting discussions though and challenges us all to consider our decisions when specifying systems.

Papers for this year will include

  • Lithium technology updates
  • Connection of strings of differing states of charge
  • Technology review for short time UPS back up
  • Life as a DC Test Technician

Last year’s event was well received and in particular it was pleasing to have such a large representation of end users and we hope once again to increase those numbers.  If you have a technical paper you could offer then please contact us as we always have space for another subject.
