Press release date: October 4, 2011

WARRENDALE, Pa., -- An explosion of recent research on Li-ion battery development, along with the growing international commitment to the market penetration of battery powered vehicles, has prompted development of the SAE International 2011 Vehicle Battery Summit, November 14-15, 2011 in Shanghai. Designed to integrate the most recent battery innovations with lessons learned in recent EV/PHEV commercialization efforts, this year's Summit will build significantly on the knowledge presented at last year's highly successful (2010) Summit.

Last September, nearly 300 engineering and corporate decision makers from leading battery, automotive, energy storage/distribution companies and their suppliers gathered in Shanghai to discuss Li-ion battery innovations and research as well as their implications for the market penetration of electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Featuring nearly thirty speakers from nine different countries and delegates from 17 countries, last year's Summit offered a uniquely global view of Li-ion battery technology and EV/PHEV industries worldwide.

This year's Summit will again bring together the world's most highly regarded engineers, scientists and corporate representatives to update the industry on the latest progress and plans for lithium based battery technologies and research as well as their implications for worldwide markets.

The Summit will be chaired by Dr. Menahem Anderman, President of Advanced Automotive Batteries and founder of Total Battery Consulting, Inc. An expert battery consultant, Dr. Anderman is known throughout the industry for his Advanced Automotive Battery Conferences (AABC) and for publishing multi-client studies of advanced vehicle and battery markets and technologies, with an emphasis on energy storage.

The Summit will feature more than 20 in-depth presentations organized across four sessions: Electrified Vehicle Market Development chaired by Dr. Anderman;Innovations in Cell Chemistry for Energy Storage chaired by Steven J. Visco, Polyplus Battery Company; Battery Design for Safety and Extended Life chaired by Dr. Robert Spotnitz of Battery Design LLC; and Battery Pack Integration and Charging Challenges and Solutions chaired by Dr. Zhenxing Fuof Shanghai E-Propulsion Auto Technology Company (SAIC).

A China Keynote will also address China's key role in the global development of Li-ion batteries and EV/PHEV markets as outlined in China's 12(th) Five Year Plan and the Energy Saving and New Energy Vehicle Development Plans.
