Session 2:
Verification of Safety, Life, and Reliability of Automotive Lithium-Ion Batteries

While battery performance and cost are receiving unprecedented attention, the safety, life, and reliability of the early installations will have the greatest impact on the market acceptance of Lithium-Ion-powered advanced vehicles. In this session, we will discuss methodology and results of life and safety tests and modeling aimed at estimating battery life and verifying safety under ordinary and abusive conditions.

Martin WinterChairman:
Joe LoGrasso, Engineering Manager, Global Battery Systems Engineering, General Motors

A member of GM for 27 years, Mr. LoGrasso has spent the past 20 years developing advanced propulsion technology and energy-storage systems for electric, hybrid, and fuel-cell vehicles. He was a key contributor to GM’s early electric-drive programs and most recently has led technology development of Li-Ion batteries for GM’s hybrid, Plug-in hybrid, and extended- range electric vehicle programs. He currently manages battery-pack system engineering and performance, safety, cell engineering, and battery-technology assessment and strategy.
