9 June 2014, Flamingo Grand Hotel, Albena, Bulgaria
An interesting pre-conference Seminar on Batteries for Hybrid and Start-Stop Applications was held on 9 June 2014, immediately before the LABAT'2014 conference. The Seminar, co-organized by IEES - Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and the Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium, was attended by more than 100 battery professionals who had the chance to listen to lectures given by some of the top experts in the field and to discuss topical issues in an attempt to reach an in-depth understanding of the state-of-the-art and the challenges to batteries for HEV and start-stop use.
