--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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, 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 include discussion on market trends for electric drive vehicles (EDVs), covering micro, mild, full/strong and plug-in HEVs as well as pure battery electric vehicles (BEVs).

Day 1 also offers attendees 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.

Day 2 will also cover an overview of the mandatory UN Transportation Tests for lithium ion batteries - UN 38.3 - its test requirements and interpretations, with focus on latest version of requirements, and interpreting these requirements for each application, especially for large format batteries.

This two-day technical seminar will be held at Intertek - a supporting organization for this event - at their Metro Detroit facility at 45000 Helm Street, Suite 150, Plymouth, MI 48170 U.S.A.
