  • (FREE) VOLTAIQ: Manufacturing Analytics to Improve Battery Quality and Accelerate Factory Ramp

    Wednesday, June 14, 2023 | 10:00 A.M. EDT USA

    The battery industry is racing to develop new manufacturing capacity as the EV and energy storage industries continue to outpace market expectations. Companies across the battery ecosystem have begun building new factories while facing the reality of long yield ramp times, supply chain immaturity, and a shortage of expertise — the typical gigafactory will take several years & billions in investment before reaching profitability.

    In this webinar, we’ll review the industry’s first software solution that enables battery manufacturers to rapidly understand cell quality and the link to upstream production and materials characteristics. This insight, when paired with the ability to control and improve production quality at unprecedented speeds, helps accelerate production ramp and improve overall cell quality.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Challenges around battery manufacturing scale-up and quality across industries
    • Understanding parallels from the semiconductor industry
    • Accelerating production ramp and improving yield, while reducing costs
    • Leveraging AI and ML capabilities to surface quality problems ASAP
    • How a fully integrated analytics solution can speed up battery manufacturing

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

    Dr. Tal Sholklapper – Co-Founder & CEO at Voltaiq

    Tal has an extensive record of success as a cleantech engineer and entrepreneur. Prior to founding Voltaiq, he worked as the lead engineer on a DOE ARPA-E funded project at the CUNY Energy Institute, developing an ultra low-cost grid-scale battery.

  • (FREE) TESA TAPE: Solving Dielectric and Thermal Challenges in EV Batteries with Adhesive Tapes

    Wednesday, June 28, 2023 | 10:00 A.M. EDT USA

    The use of electric vehicles in North America is on the rise, and the need for comprehensive safety measures for their batteries is essential. This talk will explore dielectric and thermal protection with pressure sensitive adhesive tapes as a key component of electric vehicle battery safety. We will discuss the benefits of such tapes, their basic composition, and how they can reduce the risk of failure due to electrical or thermal overloads. In addition, we will investigate how these tapes can be combined with other materials like aerogel, thermal ceramics, mica, foam, and more. Finally, we will consider some of the potential challenges and solutions associated with implementing pressure sensitive adhesive tapes in electric vehicle battery safety.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Understanding the challenges of dielectric and thermal protection in E-mobility
    • Learning how to address those challenges with different materials
    • Flame retardant mounting and encapsulation tapes
    • Emergency Thermal Propagation Venting tape solution
    • Puncture, abrasion, and high voltage resistant tapes for robust electrical insulation

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

    Dr. Fabian Brockmeyer – Lab Manager Automotive at tesa tape North America
    Nico Eddelbuettel – Market Segment Manager ePowertrain at tesa tape North America

  • (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.

    Michael Worry – CEO, Nuvation Energy

    Michael Worry founded Nuvation in 1997 and has grown the company into a thriving energy storage and engineering services firm with offices in Sunnyvale, California and Waterloo, Ontario Canada. He is the CEO and CTO of Nuvation Energy, a provider of energy controls and battery management solutions for large-scale energy storage.
