From California banning the sale of new gasoline-powered cars by 2035 to the scarcity of raw materials and political pressures related to lithium refineries, the questions surrounding EV battery technology and electrification are complicated to say the least.
For insight on these headline-grabbing topics, we sat down with Bob Galyen, Owner of Galyen Energy, LLC shortly after his keynote at The Battery Show in Novi, MI. As one of the top executives in the global battery storage community, Bob’s distinguished career includes roles as CTO of CATL (the world’s largest battery manufacturer), Chairman of SAE International Battery Standards Steering Committee, SAE Fellow, Chairman Emeritus and CTO of NAATbatt International.
Tune into this episode for Bob’s unique perspective on how the global EV market will impact the electrical grid, the cost of battery materials, the intersection of geopolitics in lithium refining, and how these factors impact businesses and consumers.
As we look to the future, the evolution of standards related to battery technology will play a key role in accelerating EV adoption. SAE has expert committees to address this need, including 22 committees that report to Bob as part of the SAE International Battery Standards Steering Committee.
