Your Battery Academy Trainers

Dr. Juergen Heydecke

Dr. Juergen Heydecke is a proven specialist in his field with decades of national and international experience. Throughout his entire professional life he has been involved with various battery chemistries and knows the requirements of the industry better than anyone else. As a participant in our Battery Academy seminars, Dr. Juergen Heydecke will provide you with everything you need to know about lithium battery technology: from basic knowledge about battery technology, materials and the design of lithium-ion and lithium-polymer cells to expert knowledge about production processes, performance and safety of the batteries as well as electronics and protective circuits in battery management systems.

Soenke Zacher

Soenke Zacher has been working in the battery industry for more than 20 years. As a project manager, he supports Jauch customers in finding the optimal battery solution for their application. Soenke Zacher is a trained jurist and thus the first person to contact for all regulatory issues and legal requirements relating to batteries in Germany and Europe (UN38.3, IEC, UL). In his seminars, he explains the most important basics of this increasingly complex topic.
