Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures (BEVA) US 2021

Building on the success of our most recent Battery Electric Vehicles Architecture event, held in February 2020, American Business Conferences are pleased to announce the launch of Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures (BEVA) US 2021. Continuing our series of highly successful interactive virtual forums, BEVA US will be held virtually between 16-18 February 2021 - allowing OEMs and experts from around the world to hear the latest insights from speakers at the heart of the automotive industry.

BEVA US 2021 Will Uniquely Evaluate Contrasting Design And Manufacturing Approaches To Battery And Body Structure Integration; Multi-Material Selection; The Application Of New Battery Technology; Approaches To Cost Effective, Flexible Manufacturing

The all-new Congress agenda, based on extensive industry research with over 50 OEMs, will enable OEMs of all sizes to produce affordable electric vehicles that meet performance requirements for key market segments. As such, our 2021 program has been developed specifically for chief engineers and systems engineers, as well as managers responsible for electrified powertrain, battery packaging, mass optimization, thermal management and EV safety.

Day One Highlights:
  • Key OEM strategies for battery and body structure integration
  • Evaluation of skateboard vs unibody designs in terms of systems integration, efficiency, cost, range, performance
  • Safety & accessibility implications for battery servicing/replacement
  • Optimal material selection for battery enclosures and BEV body structures
  • How OEMs can speed up research, development and production time in order to improve profitability
Day Two Highlights:
  • Determining the impact of new battery technology, including raw materials and cells, on whole-vehicle design, systems integration, total lifecycle performance, price per KW/hour and servicing/recycling
  • How OEMs are modelling total lifecycle performance and warranty
  • Case studies on the optimal approaches for thermal management of the battery and vehicle
  • OEMs are overcoming key manufacturing challenges -  including cost effectively integrating BEVs into ICE production

Agenda At A Glance

Key Technical Focus Areas:

  • OEM Strategies For Battery & Body Structure Integration
  • Evaluation Of Skateboard Vs Unibody Designs In Terms Of Systems Integration Efficiency, Cost, Range, Performance, Safety & Accessibility For Battery Servicing/Replacement
  • Optimal Multi-Material Selection For Battery Enclosures & B.E.V. Body Structures
  • Speeding Up Research, Development & Production Time To Improve Profitability
  • Determining The Impact Of New Battery Technology - Including All RawMaterials & Cells - On Whole Vehicle Design, Systems Integration,Total Lifecycle Performance, Price Per KW Hour And Servicing/Recycling
  • Modelling Total Lifecycle Performance & Understanding Servicing & Recycling Costs For The Battery Pack
  • Optimal Approaches For Thermal Management Of Battery & Vehicle
  • Overcoming Key Manufacturing Challenges Including Cost Effectively Integrating B.E.V. into I.C.E. Production
