Building Better Batteries

13-14 January 2020


Battery engineers work to create high-energy, cost-effective, and reliable battery cells and packs that fully utilize the battery’s chemistry. To meet these standards, engineers must consider battery materials, cell engineering, mechanical, electrical, and thermal design and the integration of packs, as well as output, safety, and durability of the key designs. The Battery Engineering Symposium 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. It will encompass both cell and pack engineering, along with their safety concerns and how advancements in these areas are not only building better batteries, but safer and more robust ones.
