The Battery Show 2016 will once again be filled with opportunities to learn about the latest battery technologies and research, and ways the technology is being implemented.

The Battery Show

The Battery Show Conference (September 13-15, Novi, MI) recently announced that the full agenda is available to view online. More than 140 expert speakers from organizations including Google, Mercedes-Benz, Ford and Proterra will provide insights into markets and applications, stationary storage, automotive battery trends, next-generation materials/R&D, electric and hybrid technology development trends and more. View the full conference agenda.

Co-located with the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference, the program is tailored to suit the needs of each part of the chain. Delegates will be able to discover what’s driving demand, what’s shaping novel technologies, what’s at the cutting edge and what constitute the critical factors for future success at this invaluable knowledge-sharing, networking experience.

The first day will cover battery markets and next-generation battery materials. Day two will take a look at stationary battery storage and next-generation battery R&D; concluded on day three with automotive battery trends and battery safety.

This well-respected conference offers delegates multiple benefits, including broadening their knowledge base, growing their professional network, becoming part of an unrivalled expert pool, and the opportunity to expand their resource platform. As always, The Battery Show expects a dynamic event and lively interaction on the forum floor.

The expert lineup of speakers includes: Denise Gray, President, LG Chem; Ramesh Bhardwaj PhD, Head of Battery and Energy Group, Google; Tobias Glossmann, Senior Systems Engineer, HV Battery Technology, Powertrain & eDrive USA, Mercedes-Benz Research & Development; Venkat Anandan, Battery Research Engineer, Ford; Jeff Kessen, VP of Corporate Strategy, A123 Systems; Gary Horvat, CTO, Proterra.

In addition to the established parallel three-track format, this year there will be a further track on the first two days. Newly introduced features include three interactive tutorials (thermal management; functional safety and risk; and fast charging), two special sessions dedicated to improving manufacturing, and a workshop on evaluating different hybrid architectures for passenger vehicles and light trucks.

Staying with the traditions of The Battery Show – and to keep the conversation going – all conference delegates will have the opportunity to network at the evening receptions when sessions close. This year, these will be sponsored by Battery Innovation Center (BIC), Delphi and East Penn Manufacturing.
