Industry's most anticipated event

JULY 2017 BATTERY SEMINAR

Conference fostering joint development efforts to advance energy storage solutions

Key Event Highlights:

  • Several unbiased and in-depth presentations by Dr. Paul Gifford – a leading independent electrochemist – on topics including:
    • Fundamentals of electro-chemistry – thermodynamics, electrokinetics, types of reactions, cell design principles, etc.
    • Latest advances in raw materials – anodes, cathodes, electrolytes, separators, etc.
    • Battery safety – charge and discharge control, tools for evaluation, etc.
    • Recycling and Re-Use – recycling, second life for used batteries, etc.
    • Technologies beyond Li Ion – LiS, Li-Air, etc.
    • Emerging technologies for large-scale applications – flow batteries, high temperature batteries, etc.
  • Latest industry updates on use of energy storage systems in automotive applications by subject matter experts from major OEMs, Tier 1 system developers and battery makers
  • Latest industry updates on use of energy storage systems in large-scale stationary grid/utility storage applications by subject matter experts from major Utility companies, Tier 1 system developers and providers
  • Poster presentations
  • Complimentary meals and refreshments
  • Plenty of industry networking opportunities
  • Chance to win some cool prizes in a raffle Giveaway
  • An evening cocktails reception and an exclusive guided tour of AVL facility

Event attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to tour AVL’s New Energy Lab in its Ann Arbor Tech Center.
