Novi MI (SPX) Sep 19, 2013
A hundred years after the first experiments on lithium batteries, the world's advanced battery and EV engineers and suppliers have not lost their genius for innovative problem-solving, product refinement and invention.
Today, industry leaders from the plug-in electric vehicle and advanced battery sectors are converging in Novi for North America's largest international exhibition and conference dedicated to battery technology, as well as its sister show dedicated to electric and hybrid vehicles.
Early and ongoing battery development may have had its challenges, but it is an evolving technology constantly responding to changing customer requirements, safety considerations and environmental legislation.
Only rarely comes the opportunity to experience the dynamic future of energy and transportation, spread out across one floor at one time with the additional benefit of the shared expertise and vision of leading business leaders, engineers and legislators in a single crucible of innovation and talent.
The Battery Show is now on its 4th successful outing in Michigan, and is this year joined by Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo for an even more comprehensive event.
More than 300 exhibitors are currently showcasing their latest technology and launching products as thousands of visitors arrive to network, do business, and take part in a three-track Conference in the appropriate setting of the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI.
2,000 years ago the Baghdad battery was the state of the art, and a century ago this year, physical chemist Gilbert Newton Lewis began experiments using non-rechargeable lithium batteries.
Batteries and electric and hybrid vehicles have a history going back into the 19th Century facing many challenges along the way, but today the industry comes of age. The 2013 show welcomes more visitors to view more exhibits and listen to more conference speakers than ever before.
