Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures & Lightweight Materials Congress

February 01, 2020 by BEVA-ALM Europe

Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures & Lightweight Materials 2020 Congress presents the realization of the transition towards zero-emission high-efficiency vehicles, battery weight reduction and design of lightweight structures becomes the main challenge for the automotive industry.

To realize the transition towards zero-emission high-efficiency vehicles, battery weight reduction and design of lightweight structures become the main challenge for the automotive industry.

To realize the transition, OEMs need to identify the right strategies in selecting and utilizing lightweight materials; taking safety, performance, production volume and manufacturability into consideration, for longer range, at lower cost.

Optimization in design, engineering, and manufacturing are key issues for all OEMs. In order to directly address these, and identify solutions, LBCG is delighted to announce the Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures & Lightweight Materials 2020 Congress, a combination of our successful BEVA series and the GALM series on BEV lightweight structures and material utilization.

 

2020 OEM-Led Speaker Panel Includes:

  • Dr. John Yan, Executive Expert of CAE Technology Vehicle Engineering & Integration, NIO, China

  • Espen Kvalvik, CEO and CTO, Fresco Motors, Norway

  • David Hudson, Head of Propulsion, Tata Motors European Technical Centre (TMETC)

  • Lewis Horne, CEO and CTO, Uniti, Sweden

 

Highlights of the 2020 agenda include:

  • Platform strategies – evaluate dedicated BEV platforms vs. conversion platforms

  • Engineering solutions to protect the battery enclosure from side & under vehicle impacts to optimize stiffness, NVH, and safety

  • Battery packaging, thermal management, and systems integration for weight reduction and efficiency optimization

  • Innovative battery design and engineering technologies for battery weight reduction

  • Flexible platform to accommodate a diversified mix of powertrains and integration in one production line

  • The optimized design of new components for battery systems, motors, and powertrain

  • Case studies and cost-effective engineering solutions in advanced joining between dissimilar materials

  • Future technologies for structural composites, adhesives, additive manufacturing, and enhanced crashworthiness

 

About BEVA-ALM Europe

Following the success of Whole Electric Vehicle Design & Battery System Integration Congress in late 2017 and 2018 in London, UK, and the Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures 2018, 2019 and 2020 held in San Francisco and Detroit, London Business Conferences are pleased to introduce the Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures & Advanced Lightweight Materials Congress 2020, which will take place in Germany on May 5 & 26, 2020.

Our automotive conferences all aim to provide practical solutions on strategic, tactical and technical challenges, and over the years almost 10,000 automotive experts have taken away invaluable insight and formed business-critical connections.
