AABC 2012. LLIBTA Symposium: Large Lithium Ion Battery Technology and Application - Overview

Martin Winter
Session 1: Lithium-Ion Cell Materials

Session Chairman:
Martin Winter, Chair, Applied Material Science for Energy Conversion and Storage, MEET Battery Research Center, Institute of Physical Chemistry, University of Muenster

In this session, we will review the latest advances in Lithium-Ion battery materials intended mostly for automotive and other large-battery applications, including cathodes, anodes, electrolytes, separators and non-active components that promise to support enhanced life or safety, or offer better performance-to-cost ratios.

Jeff Dahn
Keynote Address: Extending the Lifetime of Li-Ion Batteries for Automotive and Grid Energy Applications

Keynote Speaker:
Jeff Dahn, Canada Research Chair in Materials for Batteries and Fuel Cells; Professor, Department of Physics and Atmospheric Science, Dalhousie University

AAB is pleased to welcome Professor Jeff Dahn, recognized worldwide as a distinguished scientist in the field of advanced lithium batteries. His keynote address will explore cell technology for enhanced battery life.

Menahem Anderman
Session 2: Battery Safety and Durability Validation in Long-Life Applications

Session Chairman:
Joe LoGrasso, Engineering Manager, Global Battery Systems Engineering, General Motors

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

Haresh Kamath
Session 3: Advanced Batteries for Stationary Applications

Session Chairman:
Haresh Kamath, Senior Project, Power Delivery and Utilization, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)

Large Lithium-Ion batteries are being evaluated in numerous stationary energy-storage applications to support large utility and residential and commercial backup storage needs. In this session we will review market opportunities, the technology's commercial progress and the cost-performance prospects of Li-Ion batteries against competing technologies.
