Mark your calendar for the 17th Annual AABC event which will take place in San Francisco, CA at the Marriott Marquis Hotel from June 19-22, 2017. 625 delegates, including representatives from 18 automotive OEMs and 30 battery/pack developers participated this year in Detroit. The Call for Papers will begin in November, but if you would like to suggest a topic or speaker, please contact Cindy Crowninshield.


For more than 15 years, the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference has attracted international thought leaders and battery technologists from major automobile makers and their suppliers to discuss key issues impacting the technology and market of advanced vehicles and the batteries that will power them. As the electric vehicle market expands amid increasing pressure from looming regulatory deadlines, the need to develop batteries with better performance and lower cost has never been stronger. AABC provides an invaluable opportunity to delve into these challenges, discuss breakthroughs and best practices, and learn from the researchers and engineers who are bringing these technologies forward to consumers.
