PlugVolt, LLC a leader in offering business consultation services and organizing routine webinars and seminars for battery and alternative energy storage industries, today announced it will be hosting its next January 2014 Battery Seminar in association with AVL North America, an exclusive sponsor of this event.

This two-day seminar will be held on January 28 & 29, 2014 in Metro Los Angeles area (California, USA), and will feature numerous sessions presented by industry subject matter expert and guest speakers on super capacitors and battery solutions, their challenges, and some new cutting-edge energy storage technologies.

The event will also host separate sessions on 12V & 48V automotive batteries, and an exclusive, half-day Venture Panel where top tier VCs, Angel Investors & Senior Executives will discuss the key issues facing investors and startup CEOs alike. Industry experts will provide updated analyses and share their experience with the audience. Also, some of the hottest early-stage companies will be showcasing their promising technologies and innovations in the battery and energy storage industries live to a group of leading investors. This will be a “must attend” event for investors seeking access to new early-stage deals, or CEOs and Founders of a new venture looking for funding, visibility and growth.

“Our seminars are structured quite differently, and are more value-added than any other traditional events held in this industry,” said JC Soman, Program Manager at PlugVolt, LLC. “At this seminar an industry veteran electro-chemist – Dr. Paul Gifford – will be speaking at length on Day 1 on several aspects of battery design, raw materials, and some recent advances in anodes, cathodes, electrolytes, and other components used mostly in Li Ion batteries. He's an independent consultant with an unbiased opinion, and is not associated with any specific battery technology or company. There simply aren’t any sales or marketing pitches involved.” Applications engineers find that invaluable in understanding pros and cons of several types of battery technologies available in the market today. These in-depth technical discussions are well complemented with presentations made by guest speakers from the industry and academia on Day 2.

Day 1 also offers a facility tour, providing an exclusive inside look at AVL's California Technology Center and its’ capabilities, including a full vehicle test bed. It will provide seminar attendees an opportunity to interface with AVL’s electric drive and power-train development experts during the evening cocktail reception. Bruce Falls, Director of the AVL California Tech Center will also be providing a comprehensive overview on Advanced Development Methodologies for Hybrid Vehicles on Day 2.

Guest speakers come from A123 Systems (A123 Venture Technologies), AVL, CAP-XX, Enevate, Johnson Controls (JCI), Leyden Energy, Meikle Capital, Netzsch Instruments, Pangaea Ventures, PowerGenix, Siemens Automation Systems, TeckQuest Consulting, Valence Technology, Wildcat Discovery Technologies, etc. (more to follow)

Enjoy informal discussions, interactive Q&As, a facility tour, an evening cocktail reception, complimentary meals, networking, and much more.

This two-day battery seminar will be held at the Courtyard Marriott in Foothill Ranch, California (USA), with the evening cocktail reception and facility tour a short three miles away at AVL - a supporting organization for this event - at their Metro Los Angeles California Technology Center (CTC) at 25111 Arctic Ocean Drive, Lake Forest, CA 92630 U.S.A.
