"I'm only one among many who have dedicated their lives to improving battery and energy storage technology, and hope that through collaborative efforts we can establish a more sustainably sound living and economic environment for future generations."
At HUB2016, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud's 10:45 a.m. CET keynote will address the current battery revolution and explore the future outlook for other smart technology industries. An innovator and business developer, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud will discuss the global potential that energy technologies can have in building a more sustainable future, and positively affect change in urbanization, poverty reduction, decreased levels of carbon emissions, and more.
"It's truly a privilege that the Swedish energy industry will have the opportunity to hear from Dr. Lampe-Onnerud," said HUB2016 Project Manager Samuel Stromgren. "She is a leading innovator who has devoted her life to this industry, and has demonstrated that battery technology has the power to truly transform the conditions for human life."
