This seminar will focus on present and future needs of portable and stationary electrochemical energy sources, and highlight the latest technological developments designed to satisfy application requirements. In-depth discussions will include worldwide status quo of some raw materials presently under research, cutting-edge innovations, and recent technological advances in anodes, cathodes, electrolytes, separators and other battery components.

Typical cycle life aspects of designing and manufacturing energy storage solutions will be reviewed from an applications perspective, including electrical and mechanical designing for energy vs. power cells. Topics will cover several existing battery chemistries, including NiMH and Li Ion and their application to xEVs, along with recent advances in some lithium ion technologies, challenges faced in bringing these batteries to a high volume production, and any specific performance requirements driven by such applications.

The seminar features discussions on:

- Energy Storage Technologies for Grid Applications and Automotive xEVs
- Commerical & Military Start-Stop and Micro-Hybrid Applications
- Li Ion Use in Transportation Markets, Looking at the Supply and Demand for Li Ion Batteries in Electric Two Wheelers, Start-Stop Vehicles, Hybrid & Plug-in Vehicles and Truck Markets
- Two Evening Receptions / Networking Mixers
