Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
Leading organizations from around the world will convene in Boston for the Knowledge Foundation’s 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 & zinc
- Leading role of nanomaterials in battery technology breakthroughs
- New flow batteries
- Thin film batteries
- Highly flexible printed batteries
- From novel materials and components to systems architecture and integration
- Meeting the EV challenge: cycle life, power & energy, cost and safety
- Super-, ultra, and pseudocapacitors in hybrid battery devices
- Fuel cell / battery hybrid devices, development & application; system integration
- Advanced technology for greater safety, reliability and performance
