Danish Battery Symposium 2015
The second annual symposium in the Danish Battery Society is hosted by Ålborg university and focus on current and future battery activities in Denmark with updates from research and industry.
The agenda is available here, and presentations will, among others, cover:
- Battery assembling and packs
- Electrical luxury golf and leisure cars
- Battery material synthesis methods
- Upscaling production of battery materials
- Danish design of new E-ferry concept
- Advancements of battery management systems
Sign-up and further details are found here.
We look forward to see you in Ålborg!

Jonathan Højberg received his Cand. Polyt. in Physics and Nanotechnology from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in 2011 with a specialization within atomic scale physics related to sustainable energy solutions.
He is currently pursuing a PhD within the field of Lithium-air batteries in a collaboration between DTU Energy Conversion and Haldor Topsøe A/S. He has been heavily engaged in building up state-of-the-art test facilities for Lithium-air batteries at both places and deciding which experiments to conduct.
Jonathan is highly motivated by the interplay between universities and industry, and how the synergies can accelerate the development of new and sustainable energy technologies. In 2009 he founded a company to leverage a newly developed technology to harvest ocean wave energy. The proof-of-concept was developed by making bachelor projects and courses for 15 students at DTU with different competences and coordinating this work. The work resulted in a top-3 in the national start-up competition Venture Cup in the cleantech category and the ideas were adapted in a national collaboration granted 48 MDKK by the Advanced Technology Foundation in 2011 to further develop the technology.
Besides ocean wave power and batteries, Jonathan has worked extensively with the development of cathode materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells at the Fuel Cells and Solid State Chemistry Division at Risø, DTU (now part of DTU Energy Conversion). The work focussed on building electrochemical models to describe the cathode, and identify and optimize the most important parameters.
