Final Agenda Now Available for the 10th Annual Battery Safety Summit

Research continues to boost the energy storage capability of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) leading to expanding applications and consumer use. Higher energy plus increased use leads to higher risk. Therefore, accurate tests and models are critical for predicting and controlling the complex electrochemical, thermal, and mechanical behavior of LIBs. Additionally, regulations to promote protection and information derived from forensic investigations to enhance prevention are required. The task of implementing effective safety strategies falls on R&D scientists (chemical, electrical, material, and software engineers), battery manufacturers, regulatory authorities, forensic scientists, and the public. The 10th Annual Battery Safety Summit convenes these stakeholders to continue the vital dialogue of integrating and implementing LIB safety to meet ever-increasing energy demands. Limited speaking opportunities are available.

The Battery Safety Summit celebrates 10 years with 7 meetings over 4 days with 2 parallel packs all focused on 1 theme for lithium battery safety.
