  • (FREE) BAUM & ASSOCIATES: Going Electric – But How, When, and By Whom?

    Wednesday, February 08, 2023 | 10:00 A.M. EST USA

    Sales of battery electrics are surging, but the market is unsettled. In the last year companies have piled on the price increases, while mostly failing to meet their own production goals. But companies throughout the industry are ramping up their spending, with public investment (and regulation) pouring in as well.

    Is the focus on the high end or is the market moving mainstream? Yes.

    We will discuss product successes and failures, and what it will take for the latter to become the former. We will evaluate the major players including their key products, marketing approaches, and whether they have and/or will hit the mark.

    We will assess the outlook for industry participants as changes in production, manufacturing and design techniques, regulation, and battery technologies evolve.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Current sales and products, forecasted to 2030
    • The industry is throwing a party, albeit with different levels of commitment, sales, and production strategies
    • Impact of the Inflation Reduction Act and forthcoming EPA and California regulations
    • Opportunities and risks due to the evolving battery and materials market

    A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.

  • B-SCIENCE.NET: R&D Pathways Towards High-Energy Liquid, Semi-Solid and Solid Li-Ion Batteries

    Wednesday, May 03, 2023 | 10:00 A.M. EDT USA

    With our unique machine learning (ML)-supported innovation and patent analysis approach, we have made in-depth studies of emerging high energy positive & negative active materials, and how they can be combined with liquid, semi-solid or solid electrolytes to obtain improved performance / safety / cost profiles in EVs, consumer electronics, IoT, etc.

    This presentation will illustrate R&D pathways that are being pursued by key commercial players, identifying opportunities and risks of varying approaches.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • High energy positive and negative electrode active materials
    • Combination with liquid, semi-solid and solid electrolytes
    • Opportunities and risks of different material permutations
    • Key commercial players pursuing varying approaches

    A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.

  • (FREE) NUVATION ENERGY: Battery Management System Impacts on Energy Storage

    Thursday, October 19, 2023 | 11:00 A.M. PDT USA

    Battery management systems impact the utility, effectiveness, and life of an energy storage system. Passive balancing is less expensive than active balancing, but weaker cells or modules may need to be replaced near the end of the ESS’s lifespan. Active balancing transfers energy from stronger to weaker cells, but at a higher system cost and design complexity.

    System down time is associated with both approaches and carries such a high opportunity cost that innovations in this area may be of greater importance than the type of balancing being employed.

    Join Nuvation Energy CEO Michael Worry for an exploration of the current state of the art in battery cell balancing, and how BMS innovations will impact the future of stationary energy storage.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • A stationary ESS orientation on battery management
    • Understanding balancing-related down time
    • Comparing active and passive balancing
    • Innovations in battery management

    A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.
