Battery Engineering for Automotive Applications

Building Better Batteries

June 4-5, 2018 | Del Coronado | San Diego, CA

 

The Engineering Symposium at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference will bring together key thought-leaders to discuss important issues facing battery technologists today. As battery chemistries become increasingly powerful, battery engineering strategies must be optimized to ensure active materials are being used to the full potential. This symposium will encompass cell and pack engineering and how advances in these areas are not only building better batteries, but safer batteries as well. Key improvements in cell engineering, pack engineering, battery management systems, along with battery safety will be addressed.
