Join Battery Technologists from Leading OEMs, Cell Manufacturers, Pack Integrators, Materials Providers, and the Entire Supply Chain in San Diego

Governments across the globe and international automakers alike have recently become more bullish on the future of electrified transportation. Consequently, the technological development needed to support vehicle electrification must keep pace with rising expectations – batteries with enhanced performance, durability, cost, and abuse tolerance are indeed crucial to the viability of each of the hybrid/electric vehicle powertrains. AABC was founded to review the status of automotive battery technology and provide informed glimpses into the future. The AABC 2019 program will uncover the underlying technical and business issues that will impact the pace and path of vehicle electrification worldwide. Lithium-Ion batteries are the chief candidate for most xEV applications. Yet, for each of them, some fundamental questions remain:

  • What are their specific anode, cathode, and electrolyte chemistries?
  • Which cell design?
  • Which pack design?
  • Which suppliers?
  • At what cost?
  • In what volume for each category?

These questions will be addressed at AABC 2019, where chief battery technologists will present their development trends and projected battery needs, and key suppliers will present their latest offerings and roadmaps for the future.

OEMs in attendance this year include: Airbus, BMW, Daimler, Faraday Future, Fiat Chrysler, Ford Motor, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, INDI EV, John Deere, Kenworth Truck, Mazda, Milwaukee Electric Tool, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Proterra, Roush Industries, Subaru, Toshiba, Toyota, Volkswagen, and more.
