Making the big leaps in battery technology needed to meet consumer demand for cheaper electric cars with longer operating ranges will require simultaneous innovations on a number of fronts. Can energy storage companies band together with researchers and manufacturers to speed progress, as Sematech did for the semiconductor industry? This talk will also describe first results of CalCharge’s Advanced Manufacturing Roadmap, which assesses the potential for renewed U.S. battery manufacturing.
