Battery Engineering Symposium

Building Better Batteries

28-29 January 2019

With new improvements in battery chemistries, 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.
