AEI Article Features Menahem Anderman, Chair of SAE International Vehicle Battery Summit

WARRENDALE, Pa., July 9, 2010 - Over the days of 1-3 September 2010, SAE International will host the Vehicle Battery Summit in Shanghai, China. Chairperson for the event is Menahem Anderman, PhD, President of Advanced Automotive Batteries, USA and Founder of Total Battery Consulting, Inc. Dr. Anderman is distinguished in the industry as a broad-based battery expert who has taken both lithium- and nickel-based products from material research, through product development, and into the marketplace. He is a well-known inventor, speaker, and author, and is a recognized authority in technology assessment and battery technology legal cases. 

In October 2009, Lindsay Brooke, associate editor of SAE International’s Automotive Engineering International magazine, featured Dr. Anderman in an article. Among other things, Dr. Anderman talks about standardization and the lithium cost challenge. The full article can be read at http://www.sae.org/mags/aei/7029 .

The SAE International Vehicle Battery Summit will bring together the world’s most highly regarded engineers, scientists and corporate decision makers from the battery, automotive, utility and lithium mining industries. Co-sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers of China (SAE-China), the Summit is designed to provide corporate-level engineering and business decision makers with an assessment of current and near term Li-ion battery systems alternatives and capabilities; as well as critical marketplace and supply chain information.  

The program compares technological advances occurring worldwide, including developments in the Europe, Taiwan, Korea, the U.S. and in particular China, it also examines growth projections for the electrified vehicle/battery markets and explores their implications for the global marketplace—thereby providing the insight required for optimum business decision-making. Reliability and safety issues as well as other challenges the industry faces, including standardization, will also be addressed.

The Summit will provide an exclusive opportunity to interact with corporate technology peers from the automotive OEM, the battery components and manufacturing industry, and the lithium mining industry.  The event will include opportunities for corporate sponsorships and exhibits as well as technology related poster sessions.
