In the face of ever increasing oil prices, worldwide mandates to reduce CO2 emissions and significant investment by OEMs and Battery Manufacturers alike in EV battery technology, reducing the cost of EV ownership and meeting consumers’ performance demands remain key yet challenging goals for the industry.

However as technological developments continue, alongside the cost-benefit equation starting to tip in EVs favor as gas prices soar, now could be a decisive moment to seize the opportunity to cement EVs position in the marketplace. Capitalizing on the latest usability data and continuing to innovate cost reduction strategies across battery materials, chemistries, battery and vehicle system level integration clearly will be crucial to paving the way for mass market adoption.

The 6th Global Cost Reduction Initiative: EV Battery Tech USA Annual Meeting is the only forum where you can hear from 20+ leading Vehicle OEMs speakers, innovative start-ups and EV Battery Manufacturers to engage in focused discussions on battery technology through a cost reduction lens.

You will gain first-hand insights on state-of-the-art developments, experiences & strategies on reducing the cost of the EV battery from materials & chemistries to manufacturing, light-weighting and system level integration.

With new and more senior Vehicle OEM speakers, interactive tracked sessions and a Battery Manufacturers' panel discussion, this year’s EV Battery Tech USA is a crucial platform for all industry stakeholders to engage in a timely learning forum to drive forward mass-market production success.



Day One will analyze the latest strategic and technical EV battery developments being implemented across the industry. The latest generation of battery chemistries and materials will be presented showcasing their potential performance enhancements. Through brand new tracked sessions you will benefit from case studies focusing on the latest cost reduction strategies for vehicle level integration, standardization of components and light-weighting.

Day Two introduces a new focus on usability data assessing how this an be employed to address consumer fears on range and support evidence based future strategy based on quantitative fact rather than projections. Further sessions will examine efforts to drive down costs of commercial scale-up and through life ownership. Battery pack integration and unique insights into alternative platform electric vehicle development will be investigated before analysis of testing developments and safety.
