With the signing of the Paris Agreement in late 2016, nearly 200 countries have promised to decarbonize the global economy by the second half of the century. To meet the agreed-upon standards for 2050, the United States and other major economies must cut their carbon emissions by 80% or more. Creating high-energy density batteries at low cost will be an integral part in reaching these environmental goals.

Battery Safety

Thursday, November 2nd - Friday, November 3rd

Arlington, Virginia

Attend Battery Safety this November. Higher energy and higher use lead to higher risk. While research continues to boost the energy storage capability of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) and leads to expanding applications and consumer use, the task of implementing effective safety strategies falls on regulatory authorities, cell manufacturers, R&D engineers and forensic scientists. Accurate tests and models are critical for predicting and controlling the complex electrochemical, thermal and mechanical behavior of LIBs while forensic investigations and regulations are required for safe transport. The Battery Safety 2017 conference continues this vital dialogue to integrate and implement LIB safety to meet ever-increasing energy demands.
