EXPLORING THE IMPACT OF NEW BATTERY TECHNOLOGIES ON EV PERFORMANCE, MANUFACTURE AND INTEGRATION

KEYNOTE PANEL DISCUSSION

09:00 Exploring And Assessing Key Developments In Battery Technology, And What This Means For The Way We Design And Build Future Generations of EV

The purpose of this keynote panel discussion is to examine the latest developments in battery technology - from solid state batteries, to improved efficiencies in lithium-ion cells. We will examine the practical impact of these new technologies, and what they mean for OEMs in terms of cost, performance and safety.

We have broken this panel down into three distinct mini case studies:

Mini Case Study 1: Solid State Batteries - with NIO due to launch a solid state battery in 2022, we will explore what this development could mean for the EV industry, and the way we're designing our vehicles

Mini Case Study 2: Improve The Efficiency Of Lithium Ion Batteries - As the battery technology of choice, research and development is often focused around lithium-ion batteries. This case study gives a high-level overview of progress in this area, and how it will improve performance and efficiency

Mini Case Study 3: Innovations In Battery Chemistries And Materials - exploring developments in new and existing materials like metal, silicone, new electrolytes, nano elements and carbon fibre

Ulderico Ulissi, Battery Research Engineer, Nissan Europe

09:50 Q&A

CASE STUDY ON BATTERY ENGINEERING
