Trendy a vzdělávací potřeby pro e-mobilitu a bateriový průmysl
This webinar is especially addressed to the Czech audience. It will be held in Czech and, partially, also in English.
Skills and Talent for the Green Transition - Boosting Regional Competitiveness
The webinar intends to promote a balance between different perspectives and endeavours which will lead to a conversation around how skills assessment from the ERASMUS+ ALBATTS and the GreenSkills4H2 projects can be adapted to cross-sector green jobs. Thus, to see in what way education and skills development can add value to the skills that the labour market requires and how this in turn can contribute to increased competitiveness within the different EU regions.
Towards a Functioning battery ecosystem - building knowledge and required skills
Organised in the frame of the European Sustainable Energy Days, this webinar gathered stakeholders aiming at a prepared education ecosystem, by assessing labour market required skills and developing knowledge adapted to a green transition and a growing EU economy.
Safety aspects of EV manufacturing, use, maintenance, repair and disposal
This webinar addressed the main issues regarding the safety aspects of the use (including charging), maintenance, repair and disposal of electric vehicles.
Skills Transition in the Battery Sector
The battery industry is a relatively new field in Europe. Can human resources from other and potentially declining industries be transferred to the battery ecosystem? Which industries are more similar and more prone to provide successful workers to the battery sector? What are the training programs already in place to ease that transition?
These and other relevant topics were addressed in this webinar.
SECOND LIFE & RECYCLING
Safe Recycling & Second Use of EV Batteries: Skills and Competencies Needed
The rising demand for electrified vehicles together with insecure sources are expected to turn batteries re-use and recycling in Europe into a key lever in ensuring constant streams, cost reduction and mitigation of risk around looming raw material supply constraints.
This event addressed this and other related topics, namely the ones on the skills and competencies needed to face the coming challenges in this field.
Electrification of Inland Waterways & Future Qualifications Needed
Future geopolitical challenges in the source of raw materials and the battery value-chain
Europe is going through a rough period where the supply of different materials may be at risk. How does it affect the green transition and the consequent need for skills and competent workforce? What risks can be identified in the materials and battery value chain in possible future crisis scenarios?
Electrification of the aviation sector & future qualifications needed
This event was focused on electrification in the aviation field, and how can batteries be used to achieve lower emissions in these applications. It will also address the job roles & skills that will be needed to succeed in the electrification of aviation applications.
The webinar was primarily focused on drones and small passenger planes.
Electrification of heavy-duty vehicles: what skills & competencies will be needed?
This webinar explored the electrification of heavy-duty vehicles, particularly battery trucks and buses. It also addressed the job roles & skills that will be needed to succeed in the electrification of the freight segment. Vehicle manufacturing, application of the batteries into the vehicle and servicing & maintenance were discussed, also from the user perspective.
BMS and Control Systems: Job Roles, Skills & Competencies
The rapid electrification of society needs not only batteries but also systems that support their use. Battery Management Systems (BMS) are necessary for monitoring and controlling batteries in a wide range of applications, from electric vehicles to battery energy storage.
In this webinar, we discussed how BMS is applied. We also took a look at the BMS-related job roles and learned about the related skills and competencies.
Second Life Bus Batteries in BESS Residential Applications: Job Roles, Skills and Competences
We are pround to present an ALBATTS interview with Ylva Olofsson, System Design Engineer & Project Manager at Volvo GTT.
In this interview, we explored the use of second-life bus batteries in stationary residential applications and which job roles, skills and competencies are required.
Future Battery Technologies: Job Roles, Skills and Knowledge
We are pround to present an ALBATTS interview with Noshin Omar, Founder & CEO of Avesta Battery & Energy Engineering (ABEE).
The purpose of this interview was to provide a discussion about the current and the new trends in battery technologies, and the production and recycling of batteries.
Future Battery Technologies: Job Roles, Skills and Knowledge
We are pround to present an ALBATTS interview with Tomáš Kazda, Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Technology of Brno University of Technology.
The purpose of this interview was to provide a discussion about the current and the new trends in battery technologies, and their chance to flourish in the automotive industry and grid.
EU REGIONS WEEK WORKSHOP
Preparing a Sustainable Clean Energy Ecosystem - Skills for Battery Systems
The EU has set itself the target goal of becoming the frontrunner in achieving a wealthy and green Planet.
While promoting a green economy and jobs in this area, Europe is now facing the challenge of energy dependency. It is crucial to invest in renewable energy sources, to create the infrastructure and to improve preparedness to produce energy storage systems autonomously.
The workshop provided a detailed overview of the skills and job roles required to implement a reliable battery value-chain.
Lithium - European Sourcing and Skills
Autonomous Operation and Virtual Reality in Maritime Applications: Job roles and skills
The Maritime industry is at the forefront in autonomous operations. We read much about self-driving cars, but traditionally this is small scale pilots. In Maritime, autonomous operations have a longer history and the projects are larger. Innovation and technology development is rapid and advanced in Maritime. Leading battery technology is a key driver for the industry.
Autonomous operations drive the use of Virtual Reality and advanced simulation technology, to train new skills and competences for exiting new job roles in the Maritime Industry.
In this webinar we shared our industry insight with the audience.
Recycling Electric Vehicles’ Batteries
Recycling the Lithium-ion batteries at the end of their life could provide important economic benefits, reduce the need for new mineral extraction, and provide resilience against vulnerable links and risks in the supply chain.
However, the challenges associated with battery disassembly are numerous, be they legislative or technical. For most remanufacturing and recycling processes, battery packs must be disassembled to module-level at least. This is currently mostly done manually. The weights and high voltages of traction batteries mean that qualified employees with high-voltage training, as well as specialized tools to prevent electrocution of operators or short-circuiting of the pack, are required for such dismantling.
Battery energy storage enabling sustainable islands
We are proud to present an ALBATTS Interview with Duarte Conde Silva, Plant Manager at Graciolica.
What are the challenges of installing a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in Azores, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean? Why is it needed in the context of a grid application in an island? Which functionalities are required? What are the most important job roles, skills and competences?
This was the third in the series of four ALBATTS Interviews covering acute battery related topics.
