High-voltage battery systems
Challenges and opportunities for automotive suppliers

Nils Neumann (fka GmbH)

The year 2020 should bring the electrification of passenger cars into the volume market. The main focus of vehicle electrification is the high-voltage battery. The high-voltage battery plays a decisive role in determining key issues that are important for customer acceptance, such as costs, range, charging behavior and safety. For vehicle suppliers, the high-voltage battery offers both challenges and opportunities. With the focus on the overall system & battery housing, this presentation will highlight the requirements for battery systems. Using two examples from the areas of thermal management and safety, opportunities and potential in the market for future, innovative battery systems will be discussed in practical terms.
