Upcoming Webinars: Aerospace

Battery & Electrification Summit


Electricity is the fuel of tomorrow, a future powered by battery technology. With the global electric mobility market expected to reach nearly $500 billion by 2025, battery and power storage needs will be pushed beyond current limits. Design teams are being challenged to rethink how systems work on the ground, in the skies, and at sea.

Presented by Battery Technology magazine and SAE International, the online Battery & Electrification Summit offers two days of expert insight, innovation, and emerging applications for design engineers and managers. Covering evolving battery advancements and requirements across the automotive, commercial vehicle, aerospace, and defense sectors, the Summit will help you successfully navigate and succeed in this rapidly-evolving market.

One FREE registration gives you access to all of the sessions across two days.
