Smart Bike Seminar: Battery Technologies
21-02-2018 :: KULeuven, Campus Ghent, Gebr. Desmetstraat 1, Ghent

Organizer: Flanders Bike Valley & DSP Valley

In the framework of the Smart Bike Project, conducted by DSP Valley and Flanders Bike Valley, we kindly invite you for our seminar on battery technologies. Nowadays, almost 50% of the new bikes sold in Begium are e-bikes. This means an increasing importance of the batteries used in these electrical bikes. During this seminar we will focus on different aspects of this battery technology. Starting with an overview and a peek into the future, we will also elaborate on electronical battery management and the charging of e-bikes. We try to cover as many aspects as possible.
