Application Track 1
Advanced Automotive Battery Technology, Applications & Market
31 January – 1 February 2018 | Congress Centrum Mainz | Mainz, Germany
No longer able to meet the tightening government emission regulations with conventional diesel and gasoline engines, automakers have accelerated the development of their xEV offerings to meet the more stringent upcoming regulations. Without clarity regarding the customers’ interest in these vehicles, developers are spreading their bets on multiple architectures—mild and strong hybrids, plug-in hybrids, battery and fuel-cell electric vehicles (with various driving ranges)—striving to meet the regulations at a cost they can pass to their customers. Consequently, while the expanding xEV market is alluring, the supply chain—particularly the battery suppliers—is under strong pressure to enhance performance, reduce pricing, and help automakers to improve the vehicles’ value proposition and achieve profitability.
The wide range of energy-storage requirements for the many types of xEV architectures creates opportunities for multiple cell chemistries, and cell and pack designs. In this symposium, i) industry observers will discuss market drivers and trends, ii) xEV and xEV battery developers will discuss the chosen battery designs and present performance data for existing vehicles, iii) automakers will present vehicle development and energy-storage requirements for future micro, mild, and strong hybrid vehicles, as well as for PHEVS and EVs, and iv) energy-storage developers will present the latest achievements in meeting the requirements of the various xEV architectures, including performance and life.
This unique program, focused on advanced automotive battery technology, applications, and market, typically attracts speakers who represent international automotive battery technologists and will feature the following sessions:
- Market expansion of xEVs and their batteries
- Batteries for low-voltage hybrids
- Batteries for PHEVs and EVs
- xEV-battery reliability and durability: design and validation
