Next Generation Batteries Event to Feature New Frontiers in Power, Safety, and Life, Distinguished Faculty Speakers

FARMINGTON, Conn., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Industry leaders from around the world will convene in Boston, MA for the Knowledge Foundation's 2nd Next Generation Batteries 2013 conference which will take place at the Hilton Boston Back Bay on April 30May 1. One of the many anticipated presentations will include Mujeeb Ijaz, of A123 Systems as he presents "New Frontiers in Power, Safety, and Life"

"New Frontiers in Power, Safety, and Life"

Featuring Mujeeb Ijaz, A123 Systems

In January of 2013, A123 Systems, Inc was acquired by Wanxiang America, following bankruptcy filing the prior November. All A123 assets were included, with the exception of business associated with government programs. A123 Systems is now privately owned, and has been renamed A123 Systems LLC. A132 business is focused on four market segments: transportation, grid, lead acid replacement, and high performance solutions for unique, niche market opportunities. The A123 R&D team has become an independent business unit, and has developed an impressive technology portfolio, including world class High Power cells, VDA HEV technology, state of the art High Energy cells, and cells with incorporated Redox Shuttles. We are looking to expand collaborative relationships and technical programs in ways that leverage our strengths and will add value to others. This presentation shares technology capabilities and portfolio highlights and will be given by Mujeeb Ijaz, of A123 Systems at Next Generation Batteries 2013

Next Generation Batteries 2013program topics will include:

  • New chemistries & materials to increase energy/power & reduce cost
  • Lithium vs. non-lithium: how much power and energy is enough?
  • The OEM perspective – the application driven development of novel battery systems-by-design
  • Novel materials for battery architectures: graphene & silicon, magnesium & zinc, manganese & vanadium
  • Lithium air / lithium oxygen
  • Leading role of nanomaterials in battery technology breakthroughs
  • Advances in flow batteries
  • Thin film batteries
  • Highly flexible printed batteries / Paper batteries
  • From novel materials and components to systems architecture and integration
  • Meeting the EV challenge: cycle life, power& energy, cost and safety
  • Super-, ultra, and pseudo capacitors in hybrid battery devices
  • Advanced technology for greater safety, reliability and performance
