Today, most of our transportation needs are met by fossil fuels. We know that the way we use energy today is not sustainable in the long term. The Battery Show is a technology conference that brings together all types of stakeholders and decision-makers to explore and understand the latest developments and innovations in battery and electric vehicle technology. The Battery Show and Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo is a trade show for battery technology, next-generation battery systems, energy storage technologies, and electric and hybrid vehicle technologies.


An Overview

North America’s largest and most comprehensive battery show brings together over 550 industry experts which allow for cross-industry collaboration to address key challenges in the industry. These include how to make batteries lighter, more powerful, safer, long-lasting, recyclable, and reliable while reducing costs.
