Day 1 of the seminar will offer several presentations by Dr. Paul Gifford - an independent electrochemist, 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, and technological advances and recent developments 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 will also include a discussion on Li Ion Use in Transportation Markets, taking a look at the supply and demand for Li Ion batteries in electric two wheelers, Start-Stop vehicles, Hybrid and Plug-In vehicles and truck markets, presented by Navigant Research.

The seminar also offers attendees an exclusive tour of the Intertek battery test facility. This will be a unique opportunity to participate in a guided tour of Intertek battery performance and safety test lab, which supports environmental simulation, vibration, durability, battery performance and abuse, and electrical safety certification testing.
