Widespread adoption of electric vehicles could greatly reduce dependence on finite petroleum resources, reduce CO2 emissions and provide new scenarios for grid operation. Although new electric vehicles with advanced lithium ion batteries are being introduced, further breakthroughs in scalable energy storage, beyond current state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries, are necessary before the full benefits of vehicle electrification can be realized.

Conference speakers for the Beyond Lithium Ion conference series have been, and continue to be, a veritable “Who’s Who” of the foremost experts in advanced energy storage research, as well as industry leaders such as Mark Tappening, a co-founder of Tesla motors, Dr. Jürgen Leohold, Chief of Research for Volkswagen, and many other notables including Noble Laureate Burton Richter.
This year the list of speakers continues in the same tradition and includes many of the world’s leading scientists covering key topics such as Li-Air, Li-Sulfur, Automotive/Industrial Perspective, Enabling Li-metal, Battery Theory, Alternate Chemistry and Future Directions in Battery Science.
