This exciting, two-day seminar will feature numerous sessions presented by industry subject matter experts and guest speakers on battery solutions, challenges, and new energy storage technologies for automotive and grid storage applications. Enjoy informal discussions, interactive Q&As, a facility tour, evening cocktail receptions, complimentary meals, networking, and much more.

Guest speakers and subject matter experts come from industry and academia, including AVL North America, Bosch Battery Systems, Chrysler, Intertek, LG Chem, Magna Steyr Battery Systems, Navigant Research, Sakti3, Xalt Energy, and many more.

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.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
