Ford, Toyota and Mitsubishi are gathering, alongside other vehicle OEMs at the 4th EV Battery Tech: Global Cost Reduction Initiative, Detroit Marriott, Troy, Michigan. Leading Vehicle OEMs across the globe will be discussing how to reduce the cost of EV batteries by specifically evaluating near-term advances in energy density, battery life extension, preventative methods for cell degradation and failure, battery safety improvement and testing.

EV Battery Tech is the only place to learn from the leading vehicle OEMs on how to reduce cost around the cathode, anode and electrolyte with 1.5 hours being spent addressing specific cost reduction developments.

As everyday usage requirements continue to lead technical developments, expert speakers address how vehicle OEMS have reduced costs of TMS, whilst also examining how battery performance is affected in varying temperature conditions. The initiative ends with a focus on economies of scale opportunities deriving from standards optimization, charging compliance, raw materials cost reduction and transportation analysis.

• Takehito Yokoo, General Manager of Advanced Powertrain, Toyota
• Ted Miller, Senior Manager of Energy Storage Strategy and Research, Ford
• Zafer Sahinoglu, Senior Principle Member Research Staff, Mitsubishi
• Cheng Tung, Director of Cell Integration, CODA Automotive
