The transition to a clean and CO2-neutral energy supply requires the use of components that meet these requirements. The CO2 footprint and environmental impact of battery production must be reduced to acceptable levels. With the new EU Battery Regulation, a comprehensive set of requirements has recently been published, that will have a major impact on the battery industry.

  • What are the implications of the new EU Battery Regulation?
  • By when must each requirement be implemented?
  • What are the critical points of this regulation?
