Dr. Menahem Anderman,
President, Advanced Automotive Batteries
Menahem Anderman has directed development programs for high-power nickel-based and Li-Ion batteries as well as electrochemical capacitors. His corporate experience ranges from materials research, cell design, and product development, to battery-system application, market development, technology and business assessment and general management. He holds a PhD with honors in Physical Chemistry from the University of California, and founded Total Battery Consulting in 1996 to offer consulting services in lithium- and nickel-based battery development and application, intellectual property issues in battery-related markets, and investment assessment.
Dr. Anderman, who is known for his co-authorship of the 2000 California Air Resources Board Battery Report, founded Advanced Automotive Batteries (AAB) during that year to provide up-to-date technology and market assessments of the growing field of energy storage for advanced automotive applications. AAB published the 2002 and 2007 Advanced Automotive Batteries Industry Reports, the 2005 Ultracapacitor Report and the 2010 Plug-In Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Opportunity Report. AAB, with Dr. Anderman serving as Chairman, also organizes the main international event in the industry: the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (AABC). For over a decade, the annual AABC has attracted professionals from the hybrid and electric vehicle world and the three tiers of the battery supply chain. Renowned as a global meeting place, AABC features presentations and discussions that address the most pivotal issues affecting the technology and market of advanced vehicles and the batteries that will power them. Since 2010, to keep pace with the rapidly expanding technology and market development, AAB has been hosting two conferences per year - one in the U.S. and the other in Europe or Asia. In 2015, AABC Europe will take place in Mainz, Germany, January 26 - 29, and the international AABC will be held in Detroit, from June 15 - 19.
