Battery Chemistries for Automotive Applications

Recent Advancements in Battery Chemistries

June 24-25, 2019

The European Advanced Automotive Battery Conference attracts international thought leaders and battery technologists to discuss key issues impacting the electrification of vehicles. As the electric vehicle market expands with increasingly strict regulatory deadlines, the need to improve batteries and enhance performance while lowering cost has never been stronger. AABC provides a scientific and interactive forum to explore these challenges. In this session, leading materials R&D professionals will review the prospects of advanced cathodes, anodes, and electrolytes to deliver better performance, life, and safety, at equal or lower cost than current chemistries, and to provide enhanced value for large lithium-ion batteries.
