      Electric vehicles are forecasted to climb over 7% of new car sales worldwide in 2021, representing almost 5 million units sold and a 66% growth.1 This will only accelerate over the decade as all stakeholders within the mobility ecosystem jointly address concerns regarding EV cost, convenience, and reliability of ownership.

      To achieve the goal of true carbon neutrality, stakeholders—OEMS, technology suppliers, battery manufacturers, and energy storage providers—are required to engage at a deeper strategic level to tackle sustainability along the entire supply chain. The battery remains the key to unlocking a truly sustainable and electrified future and it is critical that all members of the electrification ecosystem address battery innovation.

      Explore this conversation in which ADI, GM, and Ford detail how they are individually and jointly addressing carbon neutrality in the battery supply chain. This session brings together different members of the electrification ecosystem to share their perspective on battery second life, sustainable material sourcing, and the role of governments and regulations.

      Featured Participants:

      • Gina Aquilano, Technology Director of Automotive Business Unit, Analog Devices
      • Tim Grewe, General Director Electrification Strategy and Cell Engineering, General Motors
      • Charles Poon, Global Director of Electrified Systems Engineering, Ford Motor Company

      Featured Video Segments:

      A More Sustainable Battery

      The relationship between OEMs and technology suppliers is not only evolving toward deeper collaborations that enable faster innovation, but is equally focusing on strategic engagements to jointly address sustainability. The panelists discuss sustainable sourcing of battery materials, the importance of a reliable battery management system, and how to enable a circular battery economy.

      Battery Reuse, Recycle, and Repair

      Will recycling be enough or does true sustainability potential lie in first reusing and then recycling? The panelists discuss practical ways to approach these issues. ADI’s wireless battery management system (wBMS) is being utilized by OEMs to accelerate sustainability goals while enabling innovative applications, including integrating blockchain technology towards creation of a battery passport.

      Carbon Neutral Battery Supply Chain

      Carbon neutrality translates beyond a commitment to going fully electric and encompasses sustainable practices throughout the supply chain—which require deeper conversations between battery manufacturers, OEMs, ESS providers, and technology providers.

      Battery Second Life

      Explore ways to enable a robust mass battery reuse program in addition to recycling using innovate battery management technologies that empower making assessments based upon accurate data collection.
