Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
Leading 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 – May 1, 2013. Save $100 now with the early bird registration which expires on Friday February, 8, 2013
This conference will address 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 road map for an emerging market with unlimited potential. Will lithium-ion batteries deliver on the promises of the power, energy, cost and safety in commercially available energy storage systems? Or maybe the future lays somewhere beyond lithium-based chemistries? Our panel of leading experts in 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.
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
