Leading organizations from around the world will convene in Boston for the Knowledge Foundations Next Generation Batteries 2012 conference which will take place at the Hilton Back Bay Hotel from July 19-20, 2012.
Breakthroughs in new battery chemistries, novel electrode and electrolyte materials, system integration for a vast array of mobile, portable and stationary applications, from micro medical devices to high-energy/high-power automotive, have paved the roadmap for an emerging market with unlimited potential. Will lithium-ion batteries deliver on the promises of power, energy, cost and safety in commercially available systems or does the future lay somewhere beyond lithium-based chemistries?
Our panel of leading experts in the fields of battery materials, systems design and integration, manufacturing and commercial applications will look into emerging issues underlining this pivotal time in the battery industry segment. Topics to be discussed with include:
New chemistries & materials to increase energy/power & decrease cost
Lithium vs. non-lithium: how much power and energy is enough?
The OEM perspective the application driven development of novel battery systems-by-design
Novel materials for battery architectures: graphene & silicon, sodium & sulfur, magnesium &
