Session 4:
Electric-Vehicle Battery Technology

Electric vehicles provide the ideal clean transportation, offering higher energy efficiency than vehicles powered by combustion of petrol fuel, and zero on-road emissions. There is only one significant obstacle to widespread electric-vehicle commercialization: the energy-storage device known as the battery. In this session we will review EV and EV-battery technology as well as the logistics and infrastructure aspects of vehicle electrification to assess how close EV technology is to offering acceptable value to the market.
