Sodium (Na) Battery Symposium SBS-3

© WISTA Management


Berlin, September 26./27. 2022

Sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) based on abundant elements are an attractive alternative to lithium-ion and lead-acid batteries. Research on SIBs gained a lot of momentum in the last years and is fueled by press releases of several companies around the world on using the technology for stationary energy storage and electric mobility.

After events in Jena (SBS-1, 2018) and Dresden (SBS-2, 2021) the third symposium will take place in Berlin (SBS-3). The scientific symposium will focus on recent trends and discoveries on

  •            Electrodes and electrolytes for sodium-ion batteries
  •            Solid electrolytes / solid-state batteries
  •            Intermediate and high temperature Na batteries
  •       Towards commercialization

The symposium is a satellite meeting of “Electrochemistry 2022” which also takes place in Berlin September 27(evening)-30.

The symposium takes place at Humboldt-University Berlin in Berlin-Adlershof, one of Germany’s largest high-technology locations. Adlershof is a hub for many scientific institutions including the Berlin synchrotron facility BESSY II (Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin) and several institutes of Humboldt University Berlin. The location can be conveniently reached by public transport (20 min to BER airport, 25 min central Berlin). Berlin is a vibrant place for science and culture and we hope to see you for SBS-3, so save the date!

If you prefer to stay close to the conference venue, the following hotels are recommended.

Please be aware that the popular Berlin Marathon takes place on Sunday Sept. the 25th. While this is a unique chance to exercise just before the conference, many hotels will be booked. We therefore highly recommend to arrange your hotel bookings early enough.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin!
