ACI’s European Electric Vehicle Batteries Summit

ACI’s European Electric Vehicle Batteries Summit 1024 614 Batteries International

Maximising the Efficiency of the Batteries while Optimising the Production Costs

ACI’s Electric Vehicle Batteries Summit will be taking place in Munich, Germany, on 20th & 21st June 2018. The two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from the battery manufacturers, car manufacturers, energy storage component material developers, technology providers, grid operators, policy makers, environmental bodies, consultants.

The concept of battery electric vehicles is to use charged batteries on board vehicles for propulsion. Battery electric cars are becoming more and more attractive with the advancement of new battery technology (Lithium Ion) that have higher power and energy density (i.e., greater possible acceleration and more range with fewer batteries) and higher oil prices.

Key Topics:

  • The multilateral involvement in the European consortium
  • Attracting the production and developing the knowledge
  • The effect of EV’s transition to the automotive value chain
  • The latest technology developments in the battery sector
  • Vehicle to grid (V2G): the impact & benefits of batteries in the network
  • Energy storage systems for mobile and stationary applications
  • New business models and Investment needed
  • Case study: vehicle manufacturers’ perspective
  • Second life and recycled batteries
  • Country case study

Date: June 20 – 21

Advanced Automotive Battery Conference

Advanced Automotive Battery Conference 1024 512 Batteries International

AABC was founded to review the status of automotive battery technology and provide informed glimpses into the future. The AABC 2018 program uncovers the underlying technical and business issues that will impact the pace and path of vehicle electrification worldwide.

Governments across the globe and international automakers alike have recently become more bullish on the future of electrified transportation. Consequently, the technological development needed to support vehicle electrification must keep pace with rising expectations – batteries with enhanced performance, durability, cost, and abuse tolerance are indeed crucial to the viability of each of the hybrid/electric vehicle powertrains. AABC was founded to review the status of automotive battery technology and provide informed glimpses into the future. The AABC 2018 program uncovers the underlying technical and business issues that will impact the pace and path of vehicle electrification worldwide. Lithium-Ion batteries are the chief candidate for most xEV applications. Yet, for each of them, some fundamental questions remain:

  • What are their specific anode, cathode, and electrolyte chemistries?
  • Which cell design?
  • Which pack design?
  • Which suppliers?
  • At what cost?
  • In what volume for each category?

These questions will be addressed at AABC 2018, where chief battery technologists will present their development trends and projected battery needs, and key suppliers will present their latest offerings and roadmaps for the future.
