Adopting A Comprehensive Approach To Battery Integration, Architecture Design & Thermal Optimization That Considers Cost, Safety, And Sustainability

The North American BEV industry is at a crossroads, facing challenges such as increasing costs and limitations in the availability of raw materials such as lithium and cobalt, as well as the emergence of competing technologies like fuel cells and solid-state technologies.

These challenges are compounded by consumer concerns surrounding range and cost - this is still a pivotal issue in 2023.

Companies offering products with less than a range of 250 miles are not meeting the market's needs, so cost-effective solutions must be found to address range anxiety.

Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures (BEVA USA) 2023 is designed to provide a realistic and actionable approach to finding answers, providing a comprehensive platform for OEMs, industry experts, and technology providers to exchange ideas and collaborate.

Improving The Overall Performance And Appeal Of BEVS And Make Them More Affordable To A Wider Range Of Consumers

Our program features a balanced mix of technical and strategic topics, showcasing breakthroughs and best practices to help OEMs lower costs and improve overall performance.  

We will explore the future direction of BEV architecture and the potential role of fuel cells in extending range through hybrid models. Additionally, the conference will delve into optimizing battery integration and thermal management, featuring evaluations of multiple solutions, including solid-state batteries and integration of batteries into the vehicle structure. This is the only event to examine thermal management in relation to the design of the vehicle at a systems level.

Battery management systems will also be a focus, with discussions on the latest interfacing with power electronics, machine learning, and AI algorithms, as well as integrating with high voltage systems for faster charging. The event will also examine the crucial link between design and manufacturing, and the practical considerations for scaling up each technical solution.

We will also examine the architectural and thermal management considerations of new integration approaches, focusing on reducing overall system costs through miniaturization and multifunctional components. The conference will showcase the latest innovations in battery performance and efficiency, emphasizing the importance of safety.

Unique Learning & Networking Experience

We aim to provide attendees with an unparalleled learning and networking experience, bringing forth a unique balance of strategic and technical discussions to shape the future of electric vehicle architectural integration by evaluating all design considerations.
