UL and SAE International join as co-sponsors

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is pleased to announce that it has teamed with the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) to co-host an upcoming event for Congressional staff on the latest innovations, standards, and conformity assessment activities that support next generation battery technology.

To be held on March 1, 2010, the event will feature expert speakers from Johnson Controls, Nissan, NASA, and the Argonne National Laboratory. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and SAE International are serving as event co-sponsors.

American technical experts are making great advancements in battery technology that are vital to U.S. competitiveness and economic growth. Termed "next generation" batteries, these devices allow longer and faster run times, reduce dependence on other sources of energy, lessen the environmental impact of modern technologies, and lead to smaller and lighter electronics. Next generation batteries will impact nearly every industry, including solar energy, electric vehicles, wind energy, and aerospace. Standards and conformance are key to the manufacture, implementation, and interoperability of this innovative technology.
