R&D Symposium 5

Battery Engineering Symposium

Building Better Batteries

30 January 2018 | Congress Centrum Mainz | Mainz, Germany

Today’s leading battery engineers are working to create high-energy, cost-effective, and reliable batteries that fully utilize the battery’s chemistry. To achieve this goal, engineers must consider materials and cell engineering, mechanical, electrical, and thermal design and integration of packs, as well as output, safety, and durability of the key designs.

Battery Engineering will bring together engineering representatives from top OEM companies, the battery supply chain, and top academic institutions to discuss the recent advancements in battery technology. This symposium will encompass both cell and pack engineering and how advancements in these areas are not only building better, but safer and more robust batteries.
