The Battery Show, North America’s largest and most comprehensive advanced battery technology event, will take place at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi from Sept. 13-15.

The Battery Show has more than 10,000 attendees signed on to date — from C-suite executives and business leaders to innovative thinkers and engineers.

“This year’s show is particularly special, as the industry is undergoing incredible growth, with demand that is underscored by the expo floor selling out months in advance of the event,” says Shamara Ray, group event director of The Battery Show North America.

With the advanced battery market forecasted to continue growing at a rapid rate amid the global electric race, there is an intensified need for peer-to-peer education, and our event provides the rare opportunity to learn from and debate with the best-of-the-best.

“Leaders from all corners of the industry work tirelessly to introduce new technologies that will change the world and how society leverages electric power — The Battery Show serves as the global meeting point to discuss ideas, develop a roadmap to navigating the industry’s most pressing challenges, and discover the latest advanced battery technologies.”

Leading battery-focused exhibitors confirmed to date include 6K Energy, Advanced Battery Concepts, Battery Innovation Center, Bosch Rexroth, Leoch Battery Group, Maccor, and more. These exhibiting trailblazers are only a few of the more than 750 suppliers confirmed to showcase the future’s most innovative technologies, and network and learn from peers.

Select sessions are detailed below:

Leaders’ Roundtable — Ramping Up Production: The Rise of the Gigafactory

This session will feature speakers Philippe Couillard, vice president of Britishvolt Canada; Bob Galyen, chariman emeritus and CTO at NAATBatt International; Jay Bellows, president of Kore Power, and Asim Hussain, CMO at QuantumScape.

Topics of discussion will include capitalizing on government stimulation for the EV market, what the projected EV battery demand is and if planned giga factories can meet it, the role of OEMs in battery production, building the North American supply chain, the possibility of achieving CO2 neutrality in battery manufacturing, and how evolving battery cell technology will impact production.

Leaders Roundtable — Building Competitive, End to End, Sustainable Battery Supply Chains

This session will feature speakers Sue Babinec, program lead for grid storage at Argonne National Laboratory; Ben Wrightsman, president and CEO at the Battery Innovation Center; Christina Lampe-Onnerud, founder and CEO of Cadenza Innovation; Craig Rigby, vice president of Technology at Clarios; James Greenberger, founder and executive director of NATTBatt;  David Klanecky, CEO of Retriev; and Kurt Kelty, vice president of automotive at Sila Nanotechnologies.

The session will outline the work of Li-Bridge public-private partnership to develop a strategy for a U.S. supply chain for lithium-ion battery technology by securing and processing battery raw materials; building relationships and ecosystems that span battery value chains; investing in a local skilled workforce to build competence in design, development, and production; and strengthening research and innovation

Panel — Battery Recycling Establishing a Sustainable and Profitable Recycling Economy for Battery Materials in North America

Speakers for this session include Thomas Schaefer, vice president of lithium business development at Ecobat; Laura Wagner, EV battery life-cycle manager at Ford Motor Co.; Jason Mucciolli, manager of e-mobility at Li-Cycle; and Megan O’Connor, founder and CEO of Nth Cycle.

Session topics will include evaluating current recycling technologies in terms of recovery, efficiency, and energy use; when direct cathode recycling will become a viable application; how much of the industry’s material needs can be met through material recycling; what needs to happen to build an effective European recycling infrastructure; who the key stakeholders are and where collaboration is happening; and if current global and European regulation can successfully drive recycling and ensure sustainable batteries.

The Battery Show is co-located with Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, the only trade show and conference exclusively dedicated to the drive train and power system in electric and hybrid vehicles. This year’s show edition will feature 150+ speakers and over 72 hours of education.
