Our previous Battery Seminar in the Metro Detroit area in 2014 enjoyed participation of over 60 different companies and institutions, and we're anticipating much stronger attendance for this event in February 2015."

"The PlugVolt Battery Seminar offers various stakeholders the opportunity to learn about transformational battery developments in a smaller, more intimate setting than is typical at most conferences," said Dr. Gifford. "Day 1 provides attendees with a foundational understanding of electrochemical principles as related to energy storage, while Day 2 features invited battery developers and end-users presenting in-depth technical up-dates on recent and emerging developments in battery technology."

The February 2015 Battery Seminar will also offer attendees a unique opportunity to participate in an exclusive guided tour of the Intertek battery test facility, which supports environmental simulation, vibration, durability, battery performance and abuse, and electrical safety certification testing. The event includes poster presentations by Cap-XX, Gamry Instruments, HEL Group, NEC Energy Solutions, NextEnergy, PEC North America, Saint-Gobain Plastics, Southwest Research Institute, Thermal Hazard Technology, TUV SUD America, Wildcat Discovery Technologies, and many more.
