Advanced Automotive Battery Conference
May 19 – 23, 2014 - International Conference Center Kyoto, Japan
AAB thanks the chairmen, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and poster presenters for the outstanding quality of their contributions at AABC Asia and also extends a warm thank you to the 430 attendees. The first AABC meeting in Japan provided some important insights into the direction of automotive battery technology and gave more weight to Asian perspectives. Lithium-ion is making inroads into start/stop vehicles as evidenced by the successful “ene-CHARGE” system based on Toshiba’s SCiB cells. Tesla’s success is spurring the industry to use batteries with higher energy density which impacts vehicle, pack, and cell design, as well as materials suppliers.
