3-Hour Workshops

Battery Safety

Batteries are daily use components for many applications, but in the race toward energy density we sometimes forget safety. This workshop focuses on portable and stationary battery safety along the battery life cycle (acceptance, testing, assembly, use, transportation, and disposal). Workshop details coming soon.

Heavy Equipment & Commercial Vehicles 102

Since the electrification evolution began, off-road vehicle industries—trucking, agricultural, industrial equipment—have shown interest in enhancing performance with it. This workshop offers an in-depth look at battery development, hybridization, fuel cell technology, and future challenges. Workshop details coming soon.

Battery Recycling Overview: Materials, Process, Economics, & Regulations

American recycling companies are becoming material suppliers to the battery industry. This workshop offers a deeper understanding of the various processing methods for materials, how to get the most value from each, and what controlling economics and regulations to consider. Workshop details coming soon.

EV Design Breakthroughs

The past year has seen a boom in electric vehicle design innovation and prior problems are getting solved in new and unexpected ways. This workshop will dig deeper into some of the recent innovations—e.g. the skateboard platform—and use them to share insight on where we go from here. Workshop details coming soon.
