Conference Overview 

The Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference & Expo brings together electric, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid vehicle technology experts, addressing the challenges throughout the supply chain including electrical powertrains and components, battery management systems, materials, and equipment.

With more than four years of exponential growth, Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo is North America's leading event for cutting-edge H/EV technology. Once again co-located with The Battery Show and Critical Power Expo, Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference attracts thought leaders and experienced professionals from across the hybrid and EV supply chain, as well as key government representatives, academics, and technical experts.

Building on the highly successful multi-track format of recent years, the 2017 event features a day of workshops followed by a three-track, three-day conference.

Key themes to be addressed on the EV and Hybrid Technology tracks include:

  • EV and hybrid future market trends
  • Implications of autonomous vehicles for the EV automotive supply chain
  • Next-generation powertrain technologies
  • 48V systems and components for mild hybrids
  • Thermal management in the electric vehicle
  • Transferring hybrid and EV vehicle technology from the racetrack to the road
  • Latest electric and hybrid propulsion powertrain technologies from the aerospace industry
  • Cost efficiency of hybrid and electric deployments for fleets
  • Latest technologies driving mass deployment of hybrid and electric buses
  • Electric vehicles for off-road construction, agriculture, and mining

Key themes to be addressed at The Battery Show Conference:

  • Preparing the battery sector for global regulatory challenges and opportunities
  • Keeping up with technology trends – what e-mobility, drones, and autonomous driving could mean for battery makers
  • Which cell materials are set to dominate?
  • Reducing cost and improving quality through manufacturing
  • What does 48V mean for battery requirements and what are the limitations?
  • Taking the pulse of solid state technology, how close is it to commercial fruition?
  • Innovative battery design and integration and management systems
  • Expedited commercialization – advancing new technology faster and at lower cost
  • How far can lead acid and li-ion go, what are the alternatives, and are they commercially viable?
  • The similarities, differences, and advanced technologies of bus and commercial fleet batteries
  • Managing the second life, end of life, and whole lifecycle of the battery
  • An update on the intellectual property landscape and how to move forward
