Even though the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road has undeniably been growing, several significant technical challenges have continued to impede widespread EV adoption. Specifically, these technology barriers include battery range, battery chemistry using scarce metals, the availability of charging stations, existing grid infrastructure, and recycling end-of-life EV batteries.

This symposium will bring together academic, industrial, and policy stakeholders to facilitate discussion across the topics of battery chemistry, battery management and safety, charging and grid infrastructure, and battery design and manufacturing with end-of-life considerations. This innovative meeting will be forward looking, focused on real-world pathways, and will spark important conversations between thought leaders in the field for how to address the technology barriers to the implementation of electric vehicles. 

Topics include:

  • Battery chemistry
  • Battery management and safety
  • Charging and grid infrastructure
  • Battery design and manufacturing and end-of-life considerations
  • Near-term and long-term challenges

This unique conference will provide plenty of opportunities for attendees to interact with the speakers and Cell Press editors, and to present their research to some of the leading names within the field, either via a poster presentation or short talk. Mid-session refreshments and lunch will be provided as scheduled in the program.
