On September 28, 2021 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. iBAT will be holding an on site workshop that applies the Design Thinking approach to the topic of E-Mobility Batteries – looking at pack level innovations

Batteries for E-Mobility – looking at pack level innovations

Cells, whether they are traditional lithium ion or next generation chemistries, need to be assembled into modules and packs in order to make them usable for OEMs. Intelligent battery management systems, advanced cooling solutions and increasing the battery pack densities can offer just as much improvement as an alteration in the fundamental cell chemistry. Innovations in these areas also tend to be cell agnostics making them an attractive area for the e-mobility supply chain.
