Wednesday, February 8 to Friday February 10, 2012

AABC 2012. AABTAM Symposium: Advanced Automotive Battery Technology, Application and Market - Session 3

Session 3:
Advances in PHEV and EV Batteries

There is only one significant obstacle to widespread commercialization of plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles: the energy-storage device known as the battery. In this session we will review the latest progress in PHEV and EV-battery technology as well as the cost, logistics, and infrastructure aspects of vehicle electrification to assess how close EV/PHEV technology is to offering acceptable value to the market.
