Preliminary Agenda Now Available
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 presented their development trends and projected battery needs, and key suppliers will present their latest offerings and roadmaps for the future.
"Not just the hype you sometimes get in purely research conferences."
- Stanley Whittingham, Ph.D., Binghamton University
"It's really the whole ecosystem of the battery world. We find it extremely valuable."
- Ted Miller, Ford Motor Company
"The AABC meeting is what I consider the premier automotive battery meeting in the world."
- Greg MacLean, Ph.D., General Motors
Thank you for visiting our website for AABC 2019. I encourage you review the scope of the Technical Program, and if you would like to be considered for a podium presentation, to submit a speaker proposal by December 21.
