SEMINAR: Latest Innovations in Battery Design & Testing

Date: Tuesday 18 July 2023


With the global move towards electrification there is the need to create smaller, lighter and more powerful batteries. Innovation is required to address industry needs and reach emissions targets. Battery design is critical and there are multiple challenges including reducing cost, increasing power and energy density whilst maintaining safety.

This seminar will focus on the most important areas of this new and important field including Li-ion testing, pressure, temperature and vibration testing as well as thermal management and future safety. It will cover all perspectives including different industries/sectors. In addition, there will be a tour of the world-class WMG Energy Innovation Centre.
