Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Industry leaders from around the world will convene in Boston for the Knowledge Foundation’s 2nd Next Generation Batteries 2013 conference which will take place at the Hilton Boston Back Bay from April 30. One of the many anticipated presentations will included Hélène Rouault of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), France and Julio Abusleme of Solvay S.A., Belgium as they present “Printed Thin Film Lithium-Ion Batteries”.
Multi-applicative smart tags, cards appear to be the next generation of devices, which could revolutionize the electronic commerce and smart communication, access, control in very large domain of applications (transport, ambient intelligence, industrial implant). Such products need embedded 2D power sources, offering the highest energy density. Basically made from inks, the lithium-ion technology is so really well adapted to be designed in such printed configuration. Consequently CEA and Solvay jointly have engaged a large program of development on innovative thin film and printable lithium-ion batteries, using monolithic structure printed from specific PVDF based inks, making them conformable and flexible. This presentation will be given by Hélène Rouault of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), and Julio Abusleme of Solvay S.A. at Next Generation Batteries 2013.
Other Next Generation Batteries 2013 program topics will include:
•New chemistries & materials to increase energy/power & reduce 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, magnesium & zinc, manganese & vanadium
•Lithium air / lithium oxygen
•Leading role of nanomaterials in battery technology breakthroughs
•Advances in flow batteries
•Thin film batteries
•Highly flexible printed batteries / Paper 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 pseudo capacitors in hybrid battery devices
•Advanced technology for greater safety, reliability and performance
