5th EV Battery Tech: Global Cost Reduction Initiative
Start Date:28 Feb 12 End Date:29 Feb 12
The electric vehicle (EV) world continues to hear new technology promises and witness hesitant adoption of the EV from the consumer world. Investments are being made into new battery chemistry and materials for improving the performance of the EV but fundamental and critical problems still exist.
Vehicle OEMs must solve the continued challenges associated with the battery to make EVs a commercially viable and feasible option for decreasing the carbon emissions of modern day transportation.
The future potential of the EV is colossal and so is the challenge that comes with integrating the EV into everyday life of the consumer: this summit will breakdown current technological capabilities and evaluate how vehicle OEMs can drive down cost, improve the performance and capitalise on the expected $8bn growth of the EV industry by 2015 (Pike Research, 2011).
The mission of the EV Battery Tech series is to provide the perfect environment to establish exactly where and how performance improvements and cost reduction can occur to promote the EV to compete with the ICE.
The transition from 1st generation to 2nd and 3rd generation EVs is a global challenge that will require global collaboration between vehicle OEMs, service providers and standards institutions.
Speakers at the summit will be:
• Sharing cost driven perspectives on improving energy density, power and range to improve the performance of the EV for mass market
• Examining material advances and cell manufacturing practices to deliver increased performance and quality at reduced cost
• Analysing the cathode, anode and electrolyte to cost effectively understand cell improvements
• Identifying how to integrate cells and modules into packs to cost effectively improve vehicle level integration
• Analysing thermal management system developments to improve battery life and performance at reduced cost
• Examining how to cost effectively deliver safety across operation, crash situations and during high ambient temperatures
• Identifying the latest supplier relationship developments and standardisation for cost effective industry alignment
• Evaluating the accuracy of BMS to cost effectively enhance battery protection and management
• Examining next generation technology advancements to showcase cost effective developments on energy density, power, range and life
