Cambridge EnerTech’s

xEV Battery Technology, Applications, and Market

June 10-11, 2020


The xEV market is driven by the expectations of demanding carmakers and consumers in relation to pricing, driving range, and fast charge capability, which all largely depend on the battery. We at AABC understand automotive battery requirements, including those for batteries with lower cost, higher energy density, wide operating temperature range, high power and fast-charge ability, and of course, safety and durability. The opportunity is huge but so are the challenges, which is why we have created a conference program that will help you follow the trends, the issues, and the directions adopted by key players.
