Increased pressure from governments to reduce CO2 and pollutant emissions, coupled with a significant improvement in the performance-to-cost ratio of automotive batteries, has accelerated the rate of xEV development across the globe. Just as important, the automakers’ view of the marketability of battery-powered EVs has become much more optimistic and they are expanding their xEV development efforts while pulling in and increasing the volumes of production plans.
This new situation has created significant opportunities for the xEV supply chain but with those come notable risks. The expectations of both the carmakers and the consumers for lower pricing, longer driving range, and fast charge capability are all demanding and, of course, durability and safety cannot be sacrificed. We, at AABC, understand automotive battery requirements, including those of batteries with lower cost, higher energy density, wide operating-temperature ranges, high power, and the ability to accept fast charge, and, of course, safety and durability. The opportunity is huge but so are the challenges—we have thus created a program to help you follow the trends, the issues, and the directions adopted by key players.
The program will cover the following topics:
- xEV market
- xEV-battery market
- Advances in high-voltage xEV batteries
- xEV battery durability
- xEV battery cost
- PEV charging technology, infrastructure, and business models
If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.
The deadline for priority consideration is December 1, 2017.
All proposals are subject to review by session chairmen to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge EnerTech policy, a select number of companies who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
