Advanced Automotive Battery Conference

June 14 to 17, 2016 - Detroit, Michigan, USA

Advanced Automotive Battery Conference

For more than 15 years, the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference has attracted international thought leaders and battery technologists from major automobile makers and their suppliers to discuss key issues impacting the technology and market of advanced vehicles and the batteries that will power them. As the electric vehicle market expands amid increasing pressure from looming regulatory deadlines, the need to develop batteries with better performance and lower cost has never been stronger. AABC provides an invaluable opportunity to delve into these challenges, discuss breakthroughs and best practices, and learn from the researchers and engineers who are bringing these technologies forward to consumers.

The expanded program for 2016 spans five days, offering a dedicated pre-conference tutorial day on June 13th followed by two R&D Symposia focused on recent advances in Battery Chemistries and Engineering to support the next generation of commercially viable automotive batteries, as well as three parallel tracks exploring the applications and opportunities for xEVs, Lead-Based Batteries, and Fuel Cell Systems. This year’s event will also provide ample time outside of the session room to have dynamic discussions with technical poster presenters, meet with exhibitors to explore the latest developments, and network with speakers and other attendees.
