Advanced Lithium Ion Battery International Symposium

Date: 18th April 2012 - 20th April 2012 Location: Charlotte - North Carolina - USA

The growing concern on environmental pollution and on global warming as well as national energy safety due to much increase consumption & import of oil has triggered a constantly increasing interest in the development of efficient, zero or controlled emission vehicles, such as electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). Among various secondary batteries, lithium-ion batteries with the highest specific energy are selected as power sources for those vehicles.

However, the present lithium ion batteries are not yet totally suitable for vehicle applications, in particularly with demand of higher energy density and longer cycle life, of lower cost and so on. Besides, safety issue and performance at various temperature ranges are still mandatory requirements. Therefore, R&D activities, aimed to upgrade lithium-ion batteries, are in progress worldwide. More & more government supports have been budget in United States, Asia and Europe and some breakthroughs in the field are expected to be obtained in the future.

Advanced Lithium Ion Battery International Symposium – 2012 is an incomparable opportunity to learn the growing trends in lithium development and its markets, while networking and creating potential business partnerships. Attendees will learn from industry pioneers in automation, technology, chemical and power industries, renewable energy and design.

Presenters and attendees will be able to discuss and compare the future outlook for this rapidly evolving industry in the market which will realize its largest commercial impact.

Advances in Lithium Ion Battery Technologies for higher safety, reliability and performance, increasing demand for Lithium batteries for EV & ESS applications in the Global Automotive Market, meeting regulatory requirements and creating Clean Energy jobs
